Fluorescence-detected magnetic resonance (FDMR) measurements in zero-field have been performed on the antenna bacteriochlorophyll (BChl) complexes of the purple photosynthetic bacteria Rhodopseudomonas (Rps.) sphaeroides strains R 26.1 and R 26 S (original mutant) and Rps. capsulata A1a+. In every case, at least two distinct triplet states are observed.
