About this book


Biophotonics and Coherent Systems in Biology
L.V. Beloussov, V.L.Voeikov and V.S. Martynyuk

Biophotonics and Coherent Systems in Biology offers a timely research volume derived from papers submitted at the 3rd International Alexander Gurwitsch Conference.  Biophotonics and Coherent Systems in Biology  covers the major aspects of  modern biophotonics and related biological and biophysical problems of interest to researchers today.    

Key topics include:

• Coherency of biophoton emission and its related physical and biological properties
• Biological effects of microwaves
• Photon emission from living samples, starting from human bodies up to cell cultures
• Fundamental role of water in bioenergetics and the influence of electromagnetic fields upon hydrophobic-hydrophilic balance
• Philosophical problems associated with holistic concepts of biological organization
• History of biophotonics, starting from pioneering works of Alexander Gurwitsch and his school (1920-1950)

The Editors:

Dr. Lev V. Beloussov, Chair of Embryology, Faculty of Biology, Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU), Moscow, Russia.
Dr. L.V. Beloussov is a Professor of Embryology at the Moscow State University (MSU). His scientific interests are associated with the problems of morphogenesis and biophysical factors of development. Dr. Beloussov is a head of the Laboratory of Developmental Biophysics, MSU, a member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences and a member of the Directorial Board of the International Institute of Biophysics.

Dr. Vladimir L. Voeikov, Chair of Bioorganic Chemistry, Faculty of Biology, Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU), Moscow, Russia.
Dr. Voeikov is a Professor of MSU, Doctor of Biological Sciences (Biophysics and Physiology). He is a member of the Board of Directors of International Institute of Biophysics (Neuss, Germany). Dr. Voeikov was one of the first to apply biophotonic approach to studies of bioenergetic properties of whole blood and different aqueous systems including drinking water and to suggest that aqueous systems may persist in highly non-equilibrium state due to direct oxidation of water by oxygen and its reactive species.

Dr. Victor S.  Martynyuk, Crimean Scientific Center of National Academy of Science of Ukraine and Ministry of education and Science of Ukraine, National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv, Ukraine.
Dr. V. Martnyuk is a scientific secretary at Crimean Scientific Center of NAS and MES of Ukraine, senior lecturer on the Biophysical Department at National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv, scientific secretary of Ukrainian Biophysical Society, and one of the leaders in bioelectromagnetics research in Ukraine.
