The reaction centers (RC) of Chloroflexus aurantiacus and Rhodobacter sphaeroidesH(M182)L mutant were investigated. Prediction for electron transfer (ET) at very low temperatures was also performed. To describe the kinetics of the C. aurantiacus RCs, the incoherent model of electron transfer was used. It was shown that the asymmetry in electronic coupling(More)
In this work, we present a model to elucidate the unidirectionality of the primary charge-separation process in the bacterial reaction centers. We have used a model of three sites/molecules with electron transfer beginning at site 1 with an option to proceed to site 2 or site 3. We used a stochastic model with arbitrary correlation functions. We get the(More)
In this work we present a stochastic model to elucidate the unidirectionality of the primary charge separation process in the bacterial reaction centers where two symmetric ways of electron transfer (ET), starting from the common electron donor, are possible. We have used a model of three sites/molecules with ET beginning at site 1 with the option to(More)
A novel rotary viscometer--developed for the determination of rheologic properties of liquid/air interface layers--is presented. The instrument can be used to measure the shear viscosity and the shear elasticity of liquid surfaces. It contains a rotor floating on the liquid surface which is rotated by means of an electromagnetic torque. A torsion filament(More)
The effect of an electric field on the electron transfer in the bacterial reaction centers is investigated. The rate constants and quantum yields affected by the electric field for wild type (WT) and reaction center (RC) mutant of Rhodobacter capsulatus were computed. The dependence of the asymmetry of electron transfer in electric field on the temperature(More)
The vortex-like solutions are studied in the framework of the gauge model of disclinations in elastic continuum. A complete set of model equations with disclination driven dislocations taken into account is considered. Within the linear approximation an exact solution for a low-angle wedge disclination is found to be independent from the coupling constants(More)
Creation of electrons or excitons by external fields in a system with initially statistically independent unrelaxed vibrational modes leads to an initial condition term. The contribution of this term in the time convolution generalized master-equation approach is studied in the second order of the perturbation theory in path-integral formalism. The(More)

Both the eigenfunctions and the local density of states (DOS) near the pentagonal defects on the fullerenes was calculated analytically as a numerically. The results shows that the low-energy DOS has a cusp which drops to zero at the Fermi energy for any number of pentagons at the tip except three. For three pentagons, the nonzero DOS across the Fermi level(More)
