From the Back Cover:

The first comprehensive and authoritative introductory work on biophotonics

Biophotonics involves the use of photonics, the technology of generating and harnessing light and other radiant energy, for biological purposes. In fact, four major technologies – lasers, photonics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology – are integrated into biophotonics, placing it at the intersection of physical, biological, and engineering sciences. Introduction to Biophotonics provides a much-needed primer on this emerging discipline.
