Ultraviolet-resonance femtosecond stimulated Raman study of the initial events in photoreceptor chromophore
Molecular Spectroscopy Laboratory, RIKEN, 2-1, Hirosawa, Wako 351-0198, Japan
Newly-developed ultraviolet-resonance femtosecond stimulated-Raman spectroscopy was utilized to study the initial structural evolution of photoactive yellow protein chromophore in solution. The obtained spectra changed drastically within 1 ps, demonstrating rapid in-plane deformations of the chromophore.
