Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Earlier Editions:

"Lakowicz’s Principles of Fluorescence Spectroscopy has been the best one-volume introduction to the biophysical principles of fluorescence methods.

- Roger Y. Tsien, Ph.D., Department of Pharmacology and Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, San Diego, California

"Principles of Fluorescence Spectroscopy is encyclopedic and comprehensive."

- Britton Chance, Professor Emeritus in Biochemistry and Biophysics,University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"Recommended without reservation both to the novice and to the expert in fluorescence."

- Analytical Biochemistry

"In addition to its use as a student text, it should be a particularly valuable reference for those involved in biochemical research."

- Chemistry in Britain

Advance Praise for Third Edition:

"This third edition has significantly expanded the topics, and will remain as a leading reference, as well as a text…the information in the book is valuable for a wide range of disciplines."

- Robert M. Clegg, Ph.D., Department of Physics, University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, Illinois

"Overall this is a most welcome, and timely transformation of the classic, and most comprehensive textbook on fluorescence spectroscopy. It should be the number one item on the shopping list for any student or researcher involved in any aspect of fluorescence, be it as a biologist who does some microscopy, or a chemist synthesizing novel fluorophores."

- Alan Ryder, Ph.D., National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science, National University of Ireland-Galway, Galway, Ireland

From the reviews of the third edition:

"This book gives an overview of the principles and applications of fluorescence. It is well structured, starting with basic knowledge about the phenomena of fluorescence and ending with the latest applications. … highly readable and informative both by novices and by experienced people. … a helpful work of reference and a wonderful creation for learning and teaching. The updated 3rd edition with its appealing design and its absolutely up-to-date and, nevertheless, complete treatment of fluorescence spectroscopy makes it essential for everyone working in this field." (Christiane Albrecht, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 390, 2008)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Luminescence Bible March 8, 2007
Format:Hardcover
What's more to say? This is the authoritative, the definitive volume for luminescence experiments from theory to all of the most useful applications. It is readable, dense, useful and indispensable if you do fluorescence, lifetime measurements, energy transfer studies, etc., etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook August 10, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Nothing to do with rubbish collection of chapters made of friends and friends of friends and me-too sections, called books...

This is an excellent book, as all useful reference books should be, like those of the old times: well written with a unique logic line, uniform notations and plots. Among others, quite low price for the quality of paper and number of pages. I would even say that this is a very good introductory book: it worked well with me, an EE.

4.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece April 17, 2010
By AAC
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Of all the reference books I have on fluorescence spectroscopy, Dr. Lakowicz's book is the most comprehensive. It is a masterpiece. His book covers many aspects of fluorescent biological systems but it also treats inorganic systems. The foundations of fluorescence and fluorescence spectroscopy are quite comprehensive and very well covered. This is an excellent text and reference book for any person involved not only in bio-related research, but in any discipline involving fluorescence.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warning!!! October 8, 2012
By yerdos
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Hey! The book is great, in terms of content and quality. The only issue which I have realized today is that most of the pages in Chapter 9 (Mechanisms and Dynamics of Fluorescence Quenching) are missing (there is only 5 pages out of 20) and my return option is expired. If you already have this book (3rd edition, 2006) please look up if you have the same problem and comment.
