mutation light harvesting cp29Congratulations to our PhD student Piermarco Saraceno for his publication titled "Probing the Effect of Mutations on Light Harvesting in CP29 by Transient Absorption and First-Principles Simulations" in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. This research explores how mutations affect the energy transfer efficiency within the CP29 complex, a key component in plant photosynthesis. The study employs an advanced approach that combines ultrafast spectroscopy with first-principles simulations to reveal detailed excitation energy transfer (EET) pathways.

By measuring transient absorption spectra of CP29 and its mutants, the researchers could map experimental kinetic components to simulated exciton dynamics. Their findings demonstrate the robustness of EET in CP29, offering new insights into the adaptability of plant light-harvesting complexes.
