The first book exclusively dedicated to the optics of single biological particles
A truly multidisciplinary text, with contributions from physics, (micro)biology, cytology, etc.
State-of-the-art discussions on the optics of many different types of biological cells
A strong interaction between new theoretical - and numerical insights and applications in experimental design
This book covers the optics of single biological particles, both theory and experiment, with emphasis on Elastic Light Scattering and Fluorescence. It deals with the optics of bacteria (bio-aerosols), marine particles (selected phytoplankton communities) and red and white blood cells. Moreover, there are dedicated chapters on a general theory for scattering by a cell, and modelling and simulation of scattering by inhomogeneous biological cells. Finally, one chapter is dedicated to astro-biological signatures, discussing the possibilities for detecting non-terrestrial biological material.
The volume has up-to-date discussions on new experimental and numerical techniques, and many examples of applications of these techniques in real-life systems, as used to detect and characterize e.g. biological warfare agents or human blood cells.
