Main description

Cutting-edge coverage of nanobiophotonics

Written by global experts, Nanobiophotonics offers in-depth details on this emerging, cross-disciplinary field. After discussions on cancer cell biology, electromagnetic fields, and nanophotonics, the book delves into nanobiophtoonics technologies and current research areas. This pioneering work covers the latest nanoscale and superresolution medical imaging methods and biomedical applications.

Nanobiophotonics covers:

  • Tissue pathology
  • Light scattering by inhomogeneous media
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Vision restoration
  • Optical low-coherence interferometric techniques
  • Plasmonics and metamaterials
  • Infrared spectroscopic imaging
  • Scattering, absorbing, and modulating nanoprobes for coherence imaging
  • Second-harmonic generation imaging of collagen-based systems
  • Plasmon resonance energy transfer nanospectroscopy
  • Erythrocyte nanoscale flickering as a marker for disease
  • Superresolution far-field fluorescence microscopy
