  • We review here the background and the experiments that led to the concept of excitation energy transfer among photosystem (PS) II units. On the basis of a kinetic analysis of oxygen evolution and chlorophyll a fluorescence yield, the authors showed, in 1964, that the PS II photochemical reaction involved in the formation of oxygen is not a first-order process. We concluded that excitation energy localized in a `photosynthetic unit' including a reduced primary acceptor is transferred with a high… CONTINUE READING
