About this book


Reviews in Fluorescence 2006, the third volume of a new book serial from Springer, serves as a comprehensive collection of current trends and emerging hot topics in the field of fluorescence.

It summarizes the year’s progress in fluorescence, with authoritative analytical reviews specialized enough to be attractive to professional researchers, yet also appealing to the wider audience of scientists in related disciplines of fluorescence.

Reviews in Fluorescence offers an essential reference material for any lab working in the fluorescence field. All academics, bench scientists, and industry professionals wishing to take advantage of the latest and greatest in the continuously emerging field of fluorescence will find it an invaluable resource.

Key features:

  • Comprehensive coverage of the year's hottest topics
  • Chapters authored by known leading figures in the fluorescence field
  • Accessible utility in a single volume reference
  • New volume publishes annually
  • Each Reviews in Fluorescence volume will be citable (ISI) and indexed

Reviews in Fluorescence 2006 topics include:

  • The History of FRET
  • Prediction of tissue damage using fluorescence spectroscopy
  • The Detection of Biological Thiols
  • Fluorescent Bronchoscopy
  • Quantum dots as labels in imaging
  • Total internal reflection-fluorescence correlation spectroscopy
  • Time-resolved fluorescence anisotropy to follow sol-gel growth and dynamics
  • Measurement of free Zinc in cells
  • Green fluorescent protein biosensors
