To explain experimentally observed oscillatory dynamics of highly efficient process of excitation energy transfer (EET) in Fenna-Matthews-Olson (FMO) complex, most theoretical models assume the same local protein environment around all the bacteriochlorophyll-a (BChla) sites, contradictory to the structural analysis of FMO complex. Using different values of pigment-protein couplings for different BChla sites, measured in the adiabatic limit of electron transfer, we theoretically investigate the…

Coherence and Its Role in Excitation Energy Transfer in Fenna-Matthews-Olson Complex.

In this work, the coherence between different bacteriochlorophyll-a (BChla) sites in the Fenna-Matthews-Olson complex is shown to be an essential ingredient for excitation energy transfer between various sites.
