About this book

This book presents emerging contemporary optical techniques of ultrafast science which have opened entirely new vistas for probing biological entities and processes. The spectrum reaches from time-resolved imaging and multiphoton microscopy to cancer therapy and studies of DNA damage. The book displays interdisciplinary research at the interface of physics and biology. Emerging topics on the horizon are also discussed, like the use of squeezed light, frequency combs and terahertz imaging as the possibility of mimicking biological systems. The book is written in a manner to make it readily accessible to researchers, postgraduate biologists, chemists, engineers, and physicists and students of optics, biomedical optics, photonics and biotechnology. 

About the authors

Deepak Mathur is Distinguished Professor at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research,Mumbai. His research interests encompass ultrafast, high-intensity laser science, and diverse topics in the atomic, molecular and optical sciences, and in biological physics. Amongst his recognitions are the Fellowship of TWAS (the World Academy of Science), the Indian National Science Academy, and the Indian Academy of Sciences. He has been awarded the Government of India’s S. S. Bhatnagar Prize, the J. C. Bose National Fellowship, the European Union’s Erasmus-Mundus Scholarship in Optical Science and Technology, the RoyalSociety’s Guest Research Fellowship, the Association of Commonwealth Universities’ Fulton Fellowship, and various named Lectureships. He has been co-Editor of EPL (Europhysics Letters) and member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Physics B and Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry.  
Parinda Vasa is currently an Associate Professor in the Physics Department of theIndian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai.

Amongst her awards andrecognitions include membership of the Indian National Young Academy of Science, theHumboldt Fellowship, the Schlumberger Foundation’s “Faculty for the future” award, theEuropean Union’s Heritage Fellowship, the Government of India’s SERB Women ExcellenceAward and Indian National Science Academy Medal for Young Scientist.

Reviews

“The authors have provided a fairly comprehensive ‘snapshot summary’ of the current field, providing interested readers with sufficient information to identify problems of interest. This book could be most useful for a researcher interested in expanding their work into the rapidly developing field of ultra-fast optical biophotonics.” (Andrew Resnick, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 58 (3), June, 2017)

“The authors look at the emerging field of ‘ultrafast biophotonics’ from a fresh physical perspective and explain many of the underlying physical concepts in clear and pictorial terms. … aims at young graduate students and researchers in ultrafast optics and biophotonics who need a timely and sufficiently broad overview of the field. … those with a more biology-oriented background will certainly benefit from being introduced to the many optics techniques that are covered in the book, and their applications in biophotonics.” (Christoph Lienau, Current Science, Vol. 112 (5), March, 2017)
