Paper Abstract

Excitation dynamics in the light-harvesting core antenna of purple bacteria were studied theoretically using a model of excitation delocalization over the circular aggregate of strongly interacting bacteriochlorophyll molecules. Energy transfer from the core antenna complex to the reaction center (RC) and between core antenna complexes was treated as a Forster-type process. The advantages of the proposed model as compared with other models are discussed.
