  1. 1. Melanosome transfer, photoreception and toxicity assays in melanophores

    Författare :Daniel Hedberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :colour change; melanophores; melanosome; intracellular transport; pigment transfer; photoreception; toxicity assay; Roundup; glyphosate;

    Sammanfattning : Many animals such as fish and frogs have developed the ability to change colour of their skin to adapt to the environment or to signal to other individuals. This ability is due to specialised skin cells called melanophores. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Quantum Resources for Efficient Excitation Energy Transfer in Natural and Artificial Pigment-Protein Molecular Aggregates

    Författare :Charlotta Bengtson; Erik Sjöqvist; Susana Huelga; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Quantum coherence; quantum correlations; quantum nonlocality; open quantum systems; non-Markovian dynamics; Kemi med inriktning mot kvantkemi; Chemistry with specialization in Quantum Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Recently, long-lasting quantum effects in a number of photosynthetic complexes, which are pigment-protein molecular aggregates (PPMAs), were experimentally verified. These findings created an interest in trying to connect the known highly efficient excitation energy transfer (EET) in these systems to the existence of quantum effects such as quantum coherence and quantum correlations.

  3. 3. Photochemistry of Eumelanin Precursors Role of Excited State Proton Transfer for UV Photoprotection

    Författare :Alice Corani; Kemisk fysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Time-resolved; Fluorescence spectroscopy; Excited State Proton Transfer ESPT ; Photochemistry; Eumelanin; Melanin;

    Sammanfattning : Melanin is an epidermal pigment commonly known to give darker skin coloration under sun exposure. It is also present in the hair, eyes, inner ear and brain. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Quantum Coherence for Light Harvesting

    Författare :David Palecek; Kemisk fysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy; Quantum coherence; Light harvesting; Photosynthetic reaction center; Energy transfer;

    Sammanfattning : Almost all life on Earth depends on the products of photosynthesis — the biochemical process whereby solar energy is stored as chemical-rich compounds. The energy of captured photons is transferred through a network of pigment-protein complexes towards the reaction center. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Electronic and Vibrational Coherence in Photosynthetic and Model Systems

    Författare :Mirianas Chachisvilis; Kemisk fysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; Ultrafast relaxation; Porphyrins; Delocalization; Anisotropy; Wavepacket; Vibrational Coherence; Excitons; Electronic coherence; Energy transfer; Femtosecond spectroscopy; Photosynthesis;

    Sammanfattning : Ultrafast optical response and excitation energy dynamics in light harvesting pigment-protein complexes and in a few model systems have been studied both experimentally and theoretically. Femtosecond light pulses were employed to excite the system and monitor the subsequent time evolution of the transient absorption kinetics and anisotropy. LÄS MER
