Biophotonics Basics

Photons, also known as the ‘quanta’ of electromagnetic radiation, are in effect the smallest known particles of light. Bio-photons are coherent ultra fine emissions from the cells of living biological entities (not to be confused with bioluminescence!), serving intra- and intercellular communication and regulation, with DNA as their fundamental source. The name most associated with the field of bio-photon research is that of German physicist professor Fritz-Albert Popp. Professor Popp is especially known for his discovery of the bio-photon mechanism of cell communication.
