Praise for Earlier Editions:

"Lakowicz’s Principles of Fluorescence Spectroscopy has been the best one-volume introduction to the biophysical principles of fluorescence methods.

- Roger Y. Tsien, Ph.D., Department of Pharmacology and Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, San Diego, California

"Principles of Fluorescence Spectroscopy is encyclopedic and comprehensive."

- Britton Chance, Professor Emeritus in Biochemistry and Biophysics,University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"Recommended without reservation both to the novice and to the expert in fluorescence."

- Analytical Biochemistry

"In addition to its use as a student text, it should be a particularly valuable reference for those involved in biochemical research."

- Chemistry in Britain

Advance Praise for Third Edition:

"This third edition has significantly expanded the topics, and will remain as a leading reference, as well as a text…the information in the book is valuable for a wide range of disciplines."

- Robert M. Clegg, Ph.D., Department of Physics, University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, Illinois

"Overall this is a most welcome, and timely transformation of the classic, and most comprehensive textbook on fluorescence spectroscopy. It should be the number one item on the shopping list for any student or researcher involved in any aspect of fluorescence, be it as a biologist who does some microscopy, or a chemist synthesizing novel fluorophores."

- Alan Ryder, Ph.D., National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science, National University of Ireland-Galway, Galway, Ireland

From the reviews of the third edition:

"This book gives an overview of the principles and applications of fluorescence. It is well structured, starting with basic knowledge about the phenomena of fluorescence and ending with the latest applications. … highly readable and informative both by novices and by experienced people. … a helpful work of reference and a wonderful creation for learning and teaching. The updated 3rd edition with its appealing design and its absolutely up-to-date and, nevertheless, complete treatment of fluorescence spectroscopy makes it essential for everyone working in this field." (Christiane Albrecht, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 390, 2008)
