Abstract: We demonstrate the ability of two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (2DES) to map ultrafast energy transfer and dynamics in two systems: the pigment–protein complex photosystem I (PSI) and aggregates of the conjugated polymer poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT). A detailed description of our experimental set-up and data processing procedure is also given.
