Target models of the excited state dynamics in LHC–Asta after Car (508 nm) and Chl (690 nm) excitations. a SADS estimated from the kinetic model for Car excitation (508 nm) shown in b. Spectrum and lifetime of Sq have been constrained to be the same for both models and for clarity the associated SADS is not shown in a. c SADS estimated from the kinetic model for 690 nm excitation shown in d. In b and d, red arrows indicate the direction of EET between the various pigments. SADS of the Car and Chl triplet states (Chl T and Car T) are assumed to be zero above 630 nm and below 630 nm, respectively. The numbers next to the arrows in b and d are rates in ns−1. For clarity, the components describing unconnected astaxanthin in b, and the formation of Chl T and Car T states are not shown in b. and d. The full target models are shown in Supplementary Figure 5
