FIG. 1.

Schematic for a network of exciton transport. The antenna (reaction center) sites are represented with green (magenta) circles which are interconnected forming a network, and creation (annihilation) of excitons is represented with dashed incoming (dotted outgoing) arrows attached to corresponding sites. The couplings between sites, represented with brown links in the network, correspond to hopping integrals in Hamiltonian , while the incoming and outgoing channels expressed by the arrows depict virtual semi-infinite chains in Hamiltonians and .

Total transmission coefficient as a function of the photon energy. (a) = 0.002 eV, (b) = 0.006 eV. Other parameters are: ε = 1.5 eV, = 0.001 eV, = 0.003 eV, = 0.001 eV, = 0.01 eV, = 0.005 eV, and = 0.3. For a given set of parameters, there is only a single peak corresponding to the global resonance of the entire source-network-drain system.

Dependence of the total exciton current as a function of the degrees of disorder (= ) and . For ( = ), = 5 meV. For (), = 2 meV, = 1 meV, and ε = ε. Other parameters are: = 0.3, ε = 1.5 eV, = 0.003 eV, = 0.001 eV, and = 0.01 eV. The exciton current is enhanced by energetic fluctuations in the antennas and the reaction centers, but it is almost unaffected by disorder in the NN hopping integral of the pigment network.

FIG. 5.

Temperature dependence of the total exciton current for various amplitudes of energetic disorder in the sources and the drains. Other parameters are: = 0.3, ε = 1.5 eV, ε − ε = 2 meV, = 1 meV, = 0.5 meV, = 0.01 eV, = 5 meV, ω = 60 meV, and λ = 1 meV. For a given value of exciton-phonon coupling strength, e.g., λ = 1 meV, the exciton current increases with the increasing temperature for all amplitudes of energetic disorder.

FIG. 6.

Temperature dependence of the total exciton current for various strengths of exciton-phonon coupling. Other parameters are: = 0.3, ε = 1.5 eV, ε − ε = 2 meV, = = 10 meV, = 1 meV, = 0.5 meV, = 0.01 eV, = 5 meV, and ω = 60 meV. The exciton current is found to increase with the temperature for all exciton-phonon coupling strength except the narrow bracket from 6 meV to 7 meV.
