In the present study the rate of triplet transfer from chlorophyll to carotenoids in solubilized LHCII was investigated by flash spectroscopy using laser pulses of approximately 2 ns for both pump and probe. Special attention has been paid to calibration of the experimental setup and to avoid saturation effects. Carotenoid triplets were identified by the pronounced positive peak at approximately 507 nm in the triplet-singlet difference spectra. DeltaOD (507 nm) exhibits a monoexponential… CONTINUE READING
