Photoacoustic techniques have been widely developed in photosynthesis research since the 1970s. We can divide the progress in this field into three periods. In the first period, a pioneer, William W. Parson (and his co-workers) discovered that the photochemical charge separation is accompanied by a conformation change. In the second period, the technique was essentially used to measure the two components of photochemical activity detected in the gas phase: energy storage (photothermal effect… CONTINUE READING
