Quantum effects in biology and organic materials: photosynthesis, solar cells and nanomachines

Talk by Winton Advanced Research Fellow, Alex Chin

The surprisingly observation of sustained, room temperature quantum dynamics in molecular structures taken from photosynthetic organism has lead to renewed interdisciplinary interest in the possible roles of quantum mechanics in biological processes. This talk will discuss some of the new ideas in the emerging field of “Quantum Biology” and how these might be applied in man-made organic systems to create new and highly efficient (quantum) nanoscale devices.

The talk is free and open to all to attend, and will be followed by refreshments.  No registration is necessary.

This talk is part of the Darwin Society series.
