Temperature Dependence of energy transfer from the long wavelength antenna BChl-896 to the reaction center in Rhodospirillum Rubrum, Rhodobacter Sphaeroides (w.t. and M21 mutant) from 77 to 177 K, studied by picosecond absorption spectroscopy
The fast transfer and trapping of excitation energy in photosynthetic bacteria have been intensively studied in recent years. For reviews we refer to (1). Steady-state (2) and time-resolved fluorescence (3) and time-resolved picosecond absorption recovery measurements have led to the formation of the following scheme for energy transfer in Rhodobacter (Rb.) sphaeroides.
