Tracking energy transfer and charge separation within photosynthetic unit of green non-sulfur bacteria

The project focuses on exploring the light-harvesting and electron transfer in intact photosynthetic organisms, mainly green non-sulfur bacteria Chloroflexus aurantiacus, at low (77 K) and room (300 K) temperatures. The light-harvesting and primary charge separation processes will be studied by 2D electronic spectroscopy and information about the energy levels, energy redistribution between chromophores, energy and electron transfer pathways and efficiencies will be obtained.

One of the main goals of the project is to understand the overall energy flow scheme in the intact photosynthetic systems.
