Exploiting quantum physics: A new visualization technique provides insight into photosynthesis

Scientists have developed an illustrative method called coherence maps to elucidate quantum phenomena. They used these maps to gain insight into the quantum mechanics behind the photosynthesis process that plants and some bacteria use to convert sunlight into food. The technique, which portrays a quantum behavior of systems, allowed the team to study the molecular… Read More »

Space Colonies: How Artificial Photosynthesis May Hold the Key to Sustained Life Beyond Earth

Life on Earth owes its existence to photosynthesis, a process that is 2.3 billion years old. This immensely fascinating (and still not fully understood) reaction allows plants and other organisms to harvest sunlight, water and carbon dioxide while converting them into oxygen and energy in the form of sugar. Photosynthesis is such an integral part… Read More »
