Probing the lowest energy chlorophyll a states of Photosystem II via selective spectroscopy: new insights on P680
We present the wavelength dependence of homogeneous holewidths of persistent spectral holes burnt in O2-evolving Photosystem II core complexes isolated from spinach, in the temperature range 2.5-8 K. The data supports the assignment that those chlorophylls which undergo persistent spectral hole-burning are specific CP43 and CP47-trap states that transfer their excitation energy to the reaction center. The lifetime-limited holewidths show that when PS II is in the S1(QA- ) (closed) state, the...[Show more]
