Abstract

Experimental photobiology and spectroscopy depend upon sources of visible and ultraviolet radiation. Synchrotron radiation has properties complementary to other sources: the spectrum is continuous, extending from the infrared through the visible and ultraviolet wavelengths into the X‐ray region; the radiation consists of subnanosecond pulses occurring millions of times per second; the source is small and the radiation well‐columnated and partially polarized. These desirable properties have generated interest among scientists in many disciplines and have led to the construction of electron storage rings as dedicated sources of synchrotron radiation. More advanced sources are being proposed. This issue of Photochemistry and Photo biology is devoted to the proceedings of a seminar entitled Ultraviolet Photobiology and Spectroscopy using Synchrotron Radiation, sponsored by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the Division of International Programs of the National Science Foundation (USA). The three day seminar, held at Brookhaven National Laboratory in October 1985, brought together scientists from the United States and Japan who design the special facilities and use synchrotron radiation sources to study the structure of biological molecules and the damage caused by ultraviolet radiation. The papers presented fall into four categories: instrumentation, vacuum ultraviolet (UV) radiation effects, vacuum ultraviolet spectroscopy and time—resolved fluorescence spectroscopy.
