Optical identification of the long-wavelength (700-1700 nm) electronic excitations of the native reaction centre, Mn 4 CaO 5 cluster and cytochromes of photosystem II in plants and cyanobacteria

Visible/UV absorption in PS II core complexes is dominated by the chl-a absorptions, which extend to ~ 700 nm. A broad 700-730 nm PS II core complex absorption in spinach has been assigned [1] to a charge transfer excitation between ChlD1 and ChlD2. Emission from this state, which peaks at 780 nm, has been seen [2] for both plant and cyanobacterial samples. We show that Thermosynechococcus vulcanus PS II core complexes have parallel absorbance in the 700-730 nm region and similar photochemical...[Show more]
