Resonance Energy Transfer<br> <br> The resonance transfer of energy between molecules, or between sites within a large molecule, plays a central role in many areas of modern chemistry and physics. In biophysics, for example, this process defines the migration of excitation energy within photosynthetic systems (commonly the Frster mechanism). Another important area is in crystals, laser and other laser materials.<br> <br> Resonance Energy Transfer contains a large amount of cutting-edge research which has never before appeared in book form. It is the first comprehensive modern survey of the field, offering a broad, yet detailed view of the mechanisms of energy transfer. The broad range of applications of fluorescence and fluorescence energy transfer to studies in molecular biology and biotechnology ensures that resonance energy transfer will be a vital component of the new science and technology of the next millenium.<br> <br> This book is written for those working with materials, both experimentally and theoretically, as well as for biophysicists and biochemists interested in studying protein structure and dynamics.<br> <br> <br> ISBN 0 471 987328 (Cloth)<br> <br> Foreword supplied by Professor Graham Fleming FRS, University of California, Berkeley, USA.<br> <br> Cover shows the Peripheral Light Harvesting Complex (LH2) of Rps.acidophila kindly supplied by Dr. Stephen M.

A technical story book for inquisitive minds - Grandpa tries to answer a tricky question. "Where does the little steam train get its energy from?" A simple lump of coal from the time of dinosaurs!!! This wonderful story describes the physics of energy conversion in a way children can understand. Visually exciting and it even covers photosynthesis. Watercolours by John Wardle. Age 6-12.
In the lifetimes of the authors, the world and especially the United States have received three significant "wake-up calls" on energy production and consumption. The first of these occurred on October 15, 1973 when the Yom Kippur War began with an attack by Syria and Egypt on Israel. The United States and many western countries supported Israel. Because of the western support of Israel, several Arab oil exporting nations imposed an oil embargo on the west. These nations withheld five million barrels of oil per day. Other countries made up about one million barrels of oil per day but the net loss of four million barrels of oil production per day extended through March of 1974. This represented 7% of the free world's (i. e. , excluding the USSR) oil production. In 1972 the price of crude oil was about $3. 00 per barrel and by the end of 1974 the price of oil had risen by a factor of 4 to over $12. 00. This resulted in one of the worst recessions in the post World War II era. As a result, there was a movement in the United States to become energy independent. At that time the United States imported about one third of its oil (about five million barrels per day). After the embargo was lifted, the world chose to ignore the "wake-up call" and went on with business as usual.
