Extracts and full articles are among the 55 selections from Porter's work published between 1967 and 1995. They document the evolution of the scientific technique related to the strobe in a camera in which not the shutter speed but the duration of the light determines how much action can be stopped. He begins with the first descriptions, then reports on applications in photochemistry, spectroscopy, the excited state and photosynthesis on time scales plummeting from milliseconds to femtoseconds. He introduces each of the 11 sections to explain the significance of the developments. Reproduced from the original publications. No index. Distributed in the US by World Scientific.
