Profiles of light absorption and chlorophyll within spinach leaves from chlorophyll fluorescence

Vogelmann, Thomas C; Evans, John


Chlorophyll fluorescence was used to estimate profiles of absorbed light within chlorophyll solutions and leaves. For chlorophyll solutions, the intensity of the emitted fluorescence declined in a log-linear manner with the distance from the irradiated surface as predicted by Beer's law. The amount of fluorescence was proportional to chlorophyll concentration for chlorophyll solutions given epi-illumination on a microscope slide. These relationships appeared to hold for more optically complex...[Show more]
