Abstract

Picosecond laser spectroscopy revealed the P+H−† state in charge transfer process in RCs of photosynthetic bacteria upon excitation in the visible region and selective excitation of P at 880 nm.1–3 This state converts into P+Q A during ~200 ps. There are contradictory results concerning existence of an earlier transient state between the purely excited P* and the charge-transfer state P+H.
