Abstract

The theory of Förster resonance energy transfer is generalized for multichromophoric (MC) and nonequilibrium situations. For the first time, it is clarified that the far-field linear spectroscopic information is insufficient for the determination of the reaction rate and that distance dependence of the rate can vary with the disorder and temperature. Application to a light harvesting complex LH2 reveals the important consequences of a MC structure.
