1. Photosystem
The functional set of light-absorbing pigments ( chlorophyll , etc.) and a reaction center in photosynthetic organisms.

2. Photosystem I
A part of the process of photosynthesis , in which pigments are stimulated by light with wavelengths lower than 700 nanometers so that they convert the light energy into chemical energy to be carried by NADPH (or other energy carriers), and to ultimately be used by carbon dioxide.

3. Photosystem II
A part of the process of photosynthesis , where pigments are stimulated by light with wavelengths lower than 685 nanometers in order to split molecules of water (H2O).

4. Photosystems
Clusters of several hundred molecules of chlorophyll in a thylakoid in which photosynthesis takes place. Eukaryotes have two types of photosystems: I and II. The series of green photoreceptive pigments involved in the light reactions , which occur in the thylakoids of the chloroplast (in eukaryotes). Energy from light is passed to the electrons as they move through the photosystem pigments.
