Photoacoustic spectroscopy is a new analytical technique which allows the detection of light-induced heat production due to non-radiative deactivation of light excitation. This paper gives an overview of the theory of photoacoustics and its application in photosynthesis research to measure energy conversion and storage, and for molecular structure and interaction studies as well as oxygen evolution in photosynthetic systems.
