Biophysical Techniques in Photosynthesis - II
Edited by Aartsma, Thijs J.; Matysik, Jörg
Since the first volume on Biophysical Techniques in Photosynthesis Research, published in 1996,
new experimental techniques and methods have been devised at a rapid pace. The present book
is a sequel which complements the first volume (Volume 3 in the Series) by providing a comprehensive
overview of the most important new techniques developed over the past ten years, especially those that
are relevant for research on the mechanism and fundamental aspects of photosynthesis. The contributions
are written by leading scientists in their field. The book has 5 sections: Imaging; Structure; Optical and
laser spectroscopy; Magnetic resonance; Theory.
Hardcover 520 pp ISBN 9781402082498
Each chapter describes the basic concepts of the technique,
practical applications and scientific results. Possibilities and limitations from a technical as well as a scientific
point of view are addressed, allowing the reader not only to recognize the potential of a particular method
for his/her own quest, but also to assess the resources that are required for implementation. The book is
intended for use by graduate students and researchers in photosynthesis as well as in (bio)physics, (bio)
chemistry and biology in general.
Written for graduate students and researchers in photosynthesis as well as in (bio)physics, (bio)chemistry
and biology in general
