A Quantum View to Light Harvesting

Fundamental quantum mechanical processes determine the properties of matter and their functionality. In order to understand light harvesting in photosynthesis and photovoltaics, a detailed knowledge of excitation and charge transfer processes and related dynamics is required. Advanced experimental methods, capable of detecting quantum coherences can be applied to isolated building blocks. I will give examples from our current project, also introducing the basic quantum mechanical understanding of processes on the molecular level.
