Springer.jpgThe 295-page volume Optics of Biological Particles represents the Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Fluorescence and other Optical Properties of Biological Particles for Biological Warfare Agent Sensors, Novosibirsk, Russia, Oct. 3-6, 2005. An addition to the “NATO Science Series II: Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry,” the resource includes contributions in such areas as bioaerosol fluorescence, astrobiological signatures, light scattering from a cell, optical and morphological characterization of selected phytoplanktonic communities, modeling of light scattering from 3-D inhomogeneous biological cells, and the optics of platelets, erythrocytes and leucocytes. An index is provided. Alfons Hoekstra, Valeri Maltsev and Gorden Videen, eds.; Springer, Dordrecht, the Netherlands, 2007; $187.95, €139.95, hardcover; $80.50, €59.95, softcover.

GLOSSARY
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
