Abstract
We review the recent application of picosecond laser techniques to the study of photosynthesis. Two techniques are emphasized. In the first a streak camera is used in conjunction with a mode locked laser to determine the 'exciton' migration time to the photosynthetic reaction center. In the second a novel nonlinear optical technique is described which enables certain deductions to be made about the topology of the photosynthetic unit. Bacteria and higher plant data are presented.
