PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
Flick the biological quantum switch: light controls photosynthetic proteins
Purpose:
This project aims to determine whether light conditions dictate which proteins, and hence quantum properties, a marine alga selects. The protein structures determine whether non-trivial quantum effects are available to the alga. Expected outcomes include fostering new technologies which will provide significant benefits, such as improving the efficiency of solar energy systems.
