Chicago University researchers have created a small molecule that support long lived quantum coherences.
- Coherences are the macroscopically observable behavior of quantum super-positions.
- Superpositions are quantum mechanical concept where a single particle, such as an electron, occupies more than one state
- Photosynthetic Antennae are proteins that organize chlorophyll
Research Results/ Summary:
Improved efficiency in the transferring of energy from the parts of the cell that convert directly from solar energy to chemical energy. New results show that this new form of energy can be directly applied to man-made compound(s).
