This device resting on a modulated light of analysis allows to follow in real time the chlorophyl fluorescence of the photosystème II and the absorption of the reactional center of the photosystème I.
Notably, it allows to estimate the outputs of light energy conversion from these two photosystems.
This spectrometer measures the changes of absorption of pigments and electrons transporters of the photosynthetic chain.The measurement being carried out with flashes of about a microsecond, it allows a fine kinetic resolution of various events of electrons transfers contributing to the photosynthesis.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
