Lecture – 'Multidimensional Spectroscopic Studies of Purple Bacterial Photosynthesis'

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry's Colloquia Series is proud to present "Multidimensional Spectroscopic Studies of Purple Bacterial Photosynthesis" by Jennifer Ogilvie, professor of physics at the University of Michigan. This lecture is hosted by Vanessa Huxter, assistant professor in the UA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Abstract:

Purple bacteria are an important model system for probing the structure-function relationship and understanding mechanisms of photosynthetic energy transfer and charge separation. Ogilvie will discuss her team's recent progress using 2D electronic spectroscopy (2DES) to probe the excitonic structure and charge separation mechanism of the bacterial reaction center (BRC). Ogilvie will also present her recent work toward developing spatially-resolved fluorescence-detected 2DES and its application to studying energy transfer in purple bacteria in vivo.
