Paper Abstract

The general characteristics of the resonance Raman (RR) scattering from the photophysically important, near-infrared absorption band of the primary electron donor (P) in photosynthetic reaction centers (RCs) are discussed within the context of spectra recently reported for RCs from Rhodobacter sphaeroides wild-type strain 2.4.1. The observed RR intensity enhancement patterns of the low-frequency modes are compared with those expected for various excited-state displacements. The influence of multimode scattering and vibrational lifetime effects is also discussed.
