New discoveries about photosynthesis may lead to solar cells of the future

Using ultrafast spectroscopy, researchers from Lund University, Sweden, have successfully measured in detail the flow of solar energy, in and between different parts of a photosynthetic organism. The result is a first step in research that could ultimately contribute to the development of technologies that use solar energy far more efficiently than what is currently possible.
