Band Structure and Local Dynamics of Excitons in Bacterial Light-harvesting Complexes Revealed by Spectrally Selective Spectroscopy


Hole-burned absorption and line-narrowed fluorescence spectra are studied at 5 K in wild type and mutant LH1 and LH2 antenna preparations from the photosynthetic purple bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides. Evidence was found in all samples, even in intact membranes, of the presence of a broad distribution of bacteriochlorophyll species that are unable to… (More)
