The excitation-energy transfer in C-phycocyanin (C-PC) trimers and monomers isolated from phycobilisomes of Mastigocladus laminosus has been studied by polarization femtosecond laser spectroscopy. Excitation with 70-fs pulses at 615 nm gave rise to a 500-fs energy-transfer process that was observed only in trimeric preparations. The rate of the process is(More)
Polarization pump-probe femtosecond spectroscopy was used to investigate photoinduced optical density changes in allophycocyanin (APC) trimers at 635-690 nm after excitation with 230-fs pulses at 618 nm. The initial bleaching observed at h < 645 nm is followed by subpicosecond absorption recovery corresponding to 430 + 40 fs recovery kinetics measured at(More)
