Molecular vibrations, along with the motion of protein- or solvent-host atoms, are known to exert important influence on the time-course of electronic excitation transfer in both model complexes and photosynthetic light-harvesting antennas. The spatial transport of electronic excitation energy has been investigated by numerous labs in recent years with a variety of ultrafast electronic spectroscopic methods.
