Foreword
ForewordThis book is an authoritative presentation of a relatively new and rapidly expanding subject that is of particular interest to biologists, chemists, physicists, physicians, and engineers. The techniques discussed have been developed in recent years and they provide information, for example, about the dynamics of both the thickness and the refractive index fluctuations of specimens on the nanoscale.The text, written by a leading expert in the field, is one of the first, if not the first, comprehensive presentation of the subject. It is clearly written and beautifully illustrated. It is a joy to read and to learn from it.EMIL WOLFWilson Professor of Optical PhysicsUniversity of Rochester
