      Quantum biology: Algae evolved to switch quantum coherence on and off
      Sydney, Australia (SPX) Jun 23, 2014 - A UNSW Australia-led team of researchers has discovered how algae that survive in very low levels of light are able to switch on and off a weird quantum phenomenon that occurs during photosynthesis. The function in the algae of this quantum effect, known as coherence, remains a mystery, but it is thought it could help them harvest energy from the sun much more efficiently. Working out its ... more
