Bernard Valeur received his undergraduate and PhD degrees at Ecole Sup#rieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de Paris (E.S.P.C.I.). He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After being an associate professor at the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles de Paris, he became full professor of physical chemistry at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, where he is emeritus professor since 2008. He has authored over 150 publications and is a member of several editorial boards.
Mário Berberan-Santos is a Senior Researcher at the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) at the Technical University of Lisbon. He graduated in Chemical Engineering from IST in 1984. After a brief stay at the National Research Council of Canada (Ottawa), he received his Ph. D. in Chemistry from IST in 1989. He was a post-doctoral Fellow at Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (Paris, France), and at Laboratoire pour l'Utilisation du Rayonnement Electromagnétique (LURE, Univ. Paris-Sud, Orsay, France). He has been Invited Professor of Physical Chemistry at Universidade do Algarve (Faro, Portugal) and Invited Full Professor at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan (France). He has authored 135 articles in scientific journals and 13 book chapters. He is member of several editorial advisory boards and Vice-President of the Portuguese Chemical Society.
"The strength of the book lies in its clear and understandable presentation, and in the thoroughness of the descriptions of fluorescence applications, enabling one to quickly appreciate the many questions and problems in the field of fluorescence. Molecular Fluorescence is more a textbook than a monograph, and therefore it is of special interest for students and beginners in the field, and be recommended."
