Two-dimensional femtosecond broadband electronic spectroscopy was used to simultaneously probe parallel pathways of energy transfer in the major light harvesting complex of Photosystem II from plants. Sub-100 femtosecond relaxation between delocalized excitonic states on highly coupled clusters of chlorophylls and several hundred femtosecond to picosecond components of relaxation between clusters were observed.
