Paper Abstract

Several techniques for time-resolved Raman spectroscopy covering timescales from 10-8 to 10-1 sec are discussed. These methods are used to obtain the Raman spectra of several intermediates in the photosynthetic cycle of bacteriorhodopsin. Using these spectra and their temporal dependences, attempts are made at determining where deprotonation occurs, and if there is a cis-trans isomerization step in the cycle. Extension of the technique to other systems and shorter timescales is discussed.
