Abstract

Thermal and fluorescence emission from thylakoid membranes were monitored simultaneously in a photoacoustic cell. A close relationship existing between variable fluorescence and variable thermal emissions is demonstrated. The modulated measuring beam of the photoacoustic spectrophotometer was used to study the effect of light intensity on the energy storage yield and on the variable fluorescence yield. The half‐saturation light intensities obtained for both parameters were 8.5 and 9.1 W m−2, respectively. The similar sensitivity of energy storage and variable fluorescence yield to light intensity indicates that electron transfer with plastoquinone as last acceptor is probably responsible for the photoacoustically monitored energy storage.
