New Book Series “Understanding and M. FRET-1,2,3” by Prof. H. V. Demir

Professor Hilmi Volkan Demir, director of UNAM and member of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Physics Departments at the Institute of Materials Science and Nanotechnology co-authored and edited a book for Springer Briefs Series in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The book is entitled “Understanding and Modeling Förster-type Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)”.

Series: SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology
Subseries: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Authors: Alexander Govorov, Pedro Ludwig Hernández-Martínez, Hilmi Volkan Demir

The First Book “Introduction to FRET, Vol-1” presents a historical overview of the Förster-type nonradiative energy transfer and a compilation of important progress in FRET research, starting from Förster until today, along with a summary of the current state-of-the-art. Here the objective is to provide the reader with a complete account of important milestones in FRET studies and FRET applications as well as a picture of the current status.

This Second Book “FRET from Single Donor to Single Acceptor and Assemblies of Acceptors, Vol. 2” presents a complete study of the generalized theory of Förster-type energy transfer in nanostructures with mixed dimensionality. Here the aim is to obtain a generalized theory of FRET including a comprehensive set of analytical equations for all combinations and configurations of nanostructures and deriving generic expressions for the dimensionality involved. In this brief, the modification of FRET mechanism with respect to the nanostructure serving as the donor vs. the acceptor will be included, focusing on the rate’s distance dependency and the role of the effective dielectric function in FRET, which will be a unique, useful source for those who study and model FRET.

This Third Book “FRET-Applications, Vol. 3” will focus on the functional uses and applications of FRET, starting with the derivation of FRET in the assemblies of nanostructures and subsequently giving application cases for biologists, physicists, chemists, material scientists, engineers, and those in many other fields whoever would like to FRET as a tool. The goal of this part is therefore to show both specialist and non-specialist how to use and analyze FRET in a wide range of applications.
