It is widely assumed that the decay of fluorescence in photosynthetic systems can be described as a sum of exponential components and that the amplitude of each component is directly related to the absorption cross-section of the antenna pigments coupled to the fluorescing species. We present exact calculations of excited state decay in two-dimensional regular lattices of different geometries containing multiple spectral forms of antenna pigments. We illustrate by these calculations that there… CONTINUE READING
