Quantum mechanics of photosynthesis!
Plants are earth’s oxygen tanks. Our planet’s life depends on these humble green creatures. Like any other living being, they (plants) too work very hard to stay alive. As a result of their hard work we get variety of required nutrients in the form of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and even protein (because the source of our protein also depends on plants in one way or the other).
Photosynthesis is a process wherein plants collect raw resources from the ambient surroundings and converts them into energy to survive and produce delicious produce for other animals to consume. But did you know, all this complex conversion and generation happens in a perfectly balanced quantum coherent state.
I am writing this post to bring you an introduction of how the discovery of a quantum coherence within photosynthesis took place and what were the findings…
