Time-Resolved Fluorescence and Photosynthesis

Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 69)

Abstract

Fluorescence is one of the most important among the spectroscopic signals which may be observed in chlorophyll-containing photosynthetic organisms. Its study has already given a lot of original information dealing with the function and structure of the photosynthetic apparatus. Although several types of pigments take part in the processing of electromagnetic excitation energy within so-called antennae, the fluorescence emitted arises essentially only from chlorophyll a. This pigment is present in chloroplasts as various types of holochromes, as discussed in the previous contribution on energy transfer in the photosynthetic apparatus. Fluorescence of in vivo chlorophyll is therefore very complex. Its heterogeneity, although not very pronounced at room temperature, can nevertheless be clearly demonstrated at low temperature.1
