    biophoton theory
    Biography Fritz-Albert Popp (born 1938 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany) is a German researcher in biophysics, particularly in biophotonics, a branch of quantum biology dealing with the analysis of single photons emitted from living organisms. Fritz-Albert Popp is the inventor of biophoton theory, and has coined the term biophotons which refers to coherent photons emitted from biological organisms. Biophoton theory concerns DNA as the most probable source of biophoton emission.
    Prof. Fritz Popp was born in 1938 in Frankfurt. His first diploma was in Experimental Physics (1966, University Würzburg), followed by the Röntgen-Prize of the University Würzburg, PH.D. in Theoretical Physics (1969, University Mainz). Habilitation in Biophysics and Medicine (1973, University Marburg). Prof. Popp rediscovered and made the first extensive physical analysis of "Biophotons". He was awarded Professorship (H2) by the Senate of Marburg University, and lectured at Marburg University from 1973 to 1980. He was Head of a research group in the Pharmaceutical Industry in Worms from 1981 to 1983 and Head of a research group at the Institute of Cell Biology (University Kaiserslautern) from 1983 to 1986 and of another research group at the Technology Center in Kaiserslautern, while, at the same time founding the company "Biophotonics".
    Prof. Popp has been the Supervisor of about 30 diploma works and dissertations in Physics, Biology and Medicine, has had several awards for Research Fellowship and Visiting Professor or Honorary Professor at Universities in Germany, China, USA and India. Titles continue: Invited Member of the New York Academy of Sciences, Founding Member of the International Consciousness Research Laboratoy (ICRL) at the Princeton University, President of the Worms Academy of Reformative Medicine (Germany), Honorary President of the Center of Documentation of Natural Healing (ZDN), Germany and Invited Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RANS). Fritz Albert Popp has about 150 publications on questions of theoretical physics and biology, complementary medicine and biophotons.International projects led to cooperation with scientists such as Walter Nagl, Herbert Frohlich, Alexander Davydov , Ilya Prigogine and David Bohm. He became an Invited Member of the New York Academy of Sciences and an Invited Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences (RANS). For a time, he worked at Princeton University. Popp is the founder of the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss (1996), Germany, an international network of 19 research groups from 13 countries involved in biophoton research and coherence systems in biology.
