Action spectroscopy in biology

Björn, Lars Olof LU (2008) In Photobiology — The science of life and light, 2nd. ed. p.139-154
Abstract
Action spectroscopy is a method for identifying the light-absorbing chromophore in a photobiological or biochemical process by comparing the efficiency of radiation of different wavelengths in driving the process. This chapter explains the principle and gives several ex-amples from the history of biology of what has been achieved using this technique.
