LHCII is the largest light-harvesting pigment-protein complex of plants, comprising more than half of photosynthetically active chlorophyll pigments in biosphere. Understanding relationship between the molecular structure of the complex and photophysical processes that undergo in this pigment-protein complex is an aim of numerous current studies. This chapter addresses possibility of the application of single-molecule fluorescence measurements and fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) in a study of LHCII.
