Laser Photoinduced Changes in the High Frequency Dielectric Constant of Chloroplasts and Dyes

  • O. E. Anitoff


Fast dielectric constant changes, which are recorded with a new and original apparatus, are found to occur in spinach chloroplasts and various dyes, when submitted, between room temperature and liquid nitrogen temperature, to a single light pulse from a ruby laser. These preliminary experiments show some kind of storage effect in chloroplasts at 77°K.
