In addition, this work is a classic example of what is wrong with science funding and review.  We would NEVER have gotten a proposal funded to make these isotopes and do these quantum yield experiments because the effect we discovered had never been seen. This was curiosity driven science which is never funded these days. The only way to do this work was to self fund with my income from royalties on DNA sequencing inventions that helped to do the first human genome. It is amusing that the human genome project indirectly allowed us to understand the primary photochemistry of vision.
