  • The excitation lifetimes of photosynthetic pigments and the times needed for energy transfer between pigments in various algae, were determined in vitro and in vivo. For this purpose, the time curves of fluorescence rise and decay were measured by means of Brody's instrument (10), and compared with theoretical curves obtained by the method of "convolution of the first kind."1
