The Fenna-Matthews-Oslon (FMO) light harvesting pigment-protein complex in green sulfur bacteria transfers the excitation energy from absorbed sunlight to the reaction center with almost 100% quantum efficiency. The protein-pigment coupling (part of the environmental effects) is believed to play an important role in determining excitation energy transfer pathways. To study the effect of environment on the electronic transitions in the FMO complex, especially by taking into account the newly… CONTINUE READING
