Beschreibungen

Last year we launched Volume 1 of the Reviews in Fluorescence series. The volume was well-received by the fluorescence community, with many e-mails and letters providing valuable feedback, we subsequently thank you all for your continued support. After the volume was published we were most pleased to learn that the volume is to be citable and indexed, appearing on the ISI database. Subsequently, as well as the series having an impact number in due course, individual chapters will appear on the database and be both citable and keyword searchable. We feel that this will be a powerful resource to both authors and readers, further disseminating leading-edge fluorescence based material. Our intention with this new series is to both disseminate and archive the most recent developments in both past and emerging fluorescence based disciplines. While all chapters are invited, we welcome and indeed encourage the fluorescence community to suggest areas of interest that they feel need to be covered by the series. In this new volume. Reviews in Fluorescence 2005, Volume 2, we have invited reviews in areas such as: Multi-dimensional Time-correlated Single Photon Counting; Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy; RNA folding; Lanthanide Probes and Fluorescent Biosensors to name but just a few. We hope you find this volume a useful resource and we look forward to receiving any suggestions you may have. Finally we would like to thank the authors for their timely articles, Caroleann Aitken for the fi-ont cover design, Kadir Asian for typesetting and Mary Rosenfeld for administrative support.

About the Editors:

Chris D. Geddes is Associate Professor, Director of the Institute of Fluorescence and Associate Director of the Center for Fluorescence Spectroscopy at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute, Medical Biotechnology Center, Baltimore. He has a B.Sc. from Lancaster University, UK and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry (fluorescence spectroscopy) from the University of Wales Swansea, UK. He is the Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Fluorescence, Who's Who in Fluorescence, and Reviews in Fluorescence as well as Executive Director of the Society of Fluorescence. Dr Geddes has published 100 scientific articles, papers, review articles and book chapters on the principles and applications of fluorescence.

Joseph R. Lakowicz is Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore and Director of the Center for Fluorescence Spectroscopy. Dr. Lakowicz has published over 400 scientific articles, has edited numerous books, holds 16 issued patents, and is the sole author of the widely used text, Principles of Fluorescence Spectroscopy, published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, now in its 2nd Edition.
Comprised of invited review articles that summarize the yearly progress in fluorescence
Citable and indexed
Includes color figures in backof the book
This second volume in the serial Reviews in Fluorescence is a collection of up to 10 invited  reviews on current trends and emerging hot topics in fluorescence. This new annual series compliments the other fluorescence titles published by Springer, while feeding the requirement from the fluorescence community for annual informative updates and developments.
