Quantum biology: Algae evolved to switch quantum coherence on and off

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… Continue reading Quantum biology: Algae evolved to switch quantum coherence on and off
