A Nano-History of Fluorescence
And the Rest
University of Hawaii, Manoa, USA
"An essential contribution to educating scientists in the
principles of fluorescence. It will also be an important addition
to the libraries of practitioners applying the principles of
-Ken Jacobson, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Cell Biology and Physiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"An exquisite compendium of fluorescence and its applications in
biochemistry enriched by a very exciting historical perspective.
This book will become a standard text for graduate students and
-Drs. Zygmunt (Karol) Gryczynski and Ignacy Gryczynski, University of North Texas Health Science Center
"... truly a masterwork, combining clarity, precision, and good
humor. The reader, novice or expert, will be pleased with the text
and will not stop reading. It is a formidable account of the
fluorescence field, which has impacted the life sciences so
considerably in the last 60 years."
-Jerson L. Silva, M.D., Ph.D., Professor and Director, National Institute of Science and Technology for Structural Biology and Bioimaging, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro
"Dr. Jameson's book fills a gap in the literature available for
the student approaching the applications of fluorescence techniques
as well as for the researcher practicing them daily in the
laboratory setting. The subject is presented by the author in a
clear didactic manner; the anecdotes and historical references make
the book truly a delight to read."
-Dr. Beniamino Barbieri, President, ISS Inc.
"An excellent textbook! This comprehensive overview written at
an introductory level covers fundamental aspects, principles of
instrumentation, and practical applications of biological
fluorescence, while providing many valuable tips. In essence, this
book reflects the excellent didactic skills and vast experience of
the author in research and teaching fluorescence. Highly
recommendable for undergraduate teaching. Also excellent material
for active researchers who are learning to apply fluorescence
-Prof. Luis Bagatolli, Center for Biomembrane Physics, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark
"I am very impressed by the author's lucid treatment. This book
is a `must read' for students and researchers."
