Artificial Leaf Development: Structure Of Artificial Light Harvesting Antenna Determined

ScienceDaily (July 13, 2009) — An international team of researchers has modified chlorophyll from an alga so that it resembles the extremely efficient light antennae of bacteria. The team was then able to determine the structure of these light antennae. This is the first step to converting sunlight into energy using an artificial leaf.
