Table of Contents

1: Photophysics of Single-Molecule Probes
2: Single-Molecule Probes of Electron Transfer Dynamics
3: Single-Molecule Spectroscopy at Interfaces
4: Quantum Dots in Single-Molecule Spectroscopy
5: Three-Dimensional Single-Molecule Tracking in Living Cells
6: Multi-Parameter Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Single Molecules
7: Probing Dynamics in Single Molecules

Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Single Molecules: Methods and Applications addresses the most recent developments in this rapidly developing field. An important addition to Elsevier’s Developments in Physical and Theoretical Chemistry series, this book is an ideal reference for chemists and physicists alike, emphasizing new techniques and applications, along with the latest research in molecular dynamics. As spectroscopic techniques are the chief experimental methods for testing theoretical models, and with the rapid development of sophisticated instruments, it is now possible to conduct spectroscopic studies that would have been impossible only a few years ago.

About the Series Volume Editors

Carey Johnson Series Volume Editor

Carey Johnson, PhD, is a Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kansas. Dr. Johnson received his Ph.D. from Iowa State University in 1981 with a research project on two-photon absorption in organic crystals with Professor Gerald Small. He remained at Iowa State for a year of postdoctoral work on coherent Raman spectroscopy and then moved to the University of Pennsylvania for an NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship under the supervision of Professor Robin Hochstrasser. Dr. Johnson has been at the University of Kansas since 1985, where he is currently Full Professor of Chemistry. His research uses time-resolved and single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy to investigate dynamics and conformations of proteins with a particular interest on calcium signaling proteins. A range of single-molecule and time-resolved methods (energy transfer, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, fluorescence anisotropy, time-correlated single photon counting) is used to probe protein dynamics and interactions. Other research interests include the development of multiphoton imaging methods. Dr. Johnson has published over 100 scientific articles and served on numerous review panels at the NIH and NSF. He has been active in teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, including recent efforts to incorporate active learning methods into general chemistry courses.
