Quantum coherence in photosynthetic units of purple bacteria

Funding period:

30.08.2019 - 29.08.2021

Project description:

In the ecological niche of photosynthetic purple bacteria, the photon density is so low that capturing every photon is essential for survival. According to new theories, quantum mechanical coherence increases the efficiency of the primary photosynthetic process, which is investigated experimentally here.
