A wide variety of biomedical photonic technologies have been developed recently for clinical monitoring of early disease states; molecular diagnostics and imaging of physiological parameters; molecular and genetic biomarkers; and detection of the presence of pathological organisms or biochemical species of clinical importance. However, available information on this rapidly growing field is fragmented among a variety of journals and specialized books.
Now researchers and medical practitioners have an authoritative and comprehensive source for the latest research and applications in biomedical photonics. Over 150 leading scientists, engineers, and physicians discuss state-of-the-art instrumentation, methods, and protocols in the Biomedical Photonics Handbook. Editor-in-Chief Tuan Vo-Dinh and an advisory board of distinguished scientists and medical experts ensure that each of the 65 chapters represents the latest and most accurate information currently available.

New optical technologies, many involving lasers or nanotechnologies providing sensitive and compact electronic-like devices, are revolutionizing many fields. Applications of new optical technologies to biology and medicine might be described as in an adolescent stage, where their power and potential can be recognized but are still developing rapidly, and much is yet to come. The Biomedical Photonics Handbook provides outstanding coverage of basic ideas, present applications of these new technologies, and future potentials. The manifold aspects of the field are discussed by a remarkable selection of experts. This handbook can be expected to be a much used and standard reference during the inevitably rapid development of biological and medical photonics.
-Charles H. Townes, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1964, Co-inventor of the Laser
This straightforward, well-organized book is an excellent reference that consolidates a wealth of information of interest to anyone involved in biophotonics research, teaching, learning or practice.
