About this Book
The bestselling 3-volume set is now available online
The Handbook of Biophotonics is a unique and ground breaking reference work, designed to set the standard for the scientific community. Its application-related approach makes this an invaluable resource for biophotonic scientists in their daily work.
The Handbook provides readers with the physics basics as well as the biological and medical background, together with detailed reports on recent technical advances.
Divided into several sections, the first part offers introductory chapters on the different fields of research, with subsequent parts focusing on the applications and then citing the various tools and techniques to solve the scientific task in various fields of industry and research. The result is a handy source for scientists seeking the basics in a condensed form, and equally a reference for quickly gathering the knowledge from neighboring disciplines. The Handbook is also of particular value to medical doctors.
This reference work covers the world of biophotonics both geographically -- with the editors coming from different continents -- and in terms of content, since the authors come from the whole spectrum of biophotonic basic and applied research.
