Sub-20-fs study of energy relaxation in carotenoids in solution and inside light harvesting complexes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Using sub-20-fs pulses, tunable from the UV to the IR, we study the S2^S1 internal conversion dynamics in several carotenoids. We resolve an intermediate excited state and directly determine the energy transfer efficiency to Bacteriochlorophylls.
