Fluorescence Probes in Polymers and Liquid Crystals: Complex Macromolecular Chain Dynamics (Proposal from the Far East)

  • H. Ushiki

Abstract

In our previous book [1], I wrote the following: “At the point of nihility without time nor space, an explosion of dense matter marked the origin of the universe. Immediately after this accident, a fireball of radiation at a unbelievably high temperature formed in a tiny volume. Many photons were produced by collisions between quarks and anti-quarks. This is the Big-Bang theory of the genesis of the universe. It is not unusual for books on the concept of light to begin with a quotation taken from the Bible on the creation of the world. Indeed, the relationship between mankind and light has a long history and it has been strongly connected to all aspects of life, from antiquity to the modern ages. Man has always been careful to distinguish light from heat. Light is always given a much greater importance throughout the ages. Light is a crucial tool in many religions. Men do not speak badly of light. Note for instance that light is used in the Japanese word Goraiko describing the admiration of the sun, while heat is included in an expression describing hell, Shakunetsu-Jigoku, the scorching heat in hell. Hence it comes as no surprise that man has always been fascinated by the multiple properties of light”.
