"Estimation of the relative contributions to the electronic energy transfer rates based on Förster theory: The case of C-phycocyanin chromophores"

【Significance】
We propose a logarithmic reformulation of the original Förster theory leading to a simple set of formulae useful to accurately estimate the relative contributions of transition dipole moments of donor and acceptor (chemical factors), their orientation factors (structural factors), intermolecular center-to-center distances (structural factors), spectral overlaps of absorption and emission spectra (photophysical factors), and refractive index (material factor). These allow for the calculation of excitation energy transfer (EET) rate constant and a molecular-level interpretation providing a microscopic insight into the mechanism details. By focusing on the EET in C-phycocyanin chromophores, we show that our formulae are well suited to estimate the relative contributions to the EET rate constant.
