Description
Recent experimental investigations of excitonic transport in photosynthesis indicate that quantum coherence can play an important role in enhancing energy transport in photosynthetic complexes. This talk presents a general theory of optimizing energy transport in photosynthesis and in artificial systems. Optimal energy transport takes place at the point where the timescales for dynamic and static disorder converge, a phenomenon called the quantum Goldilocks effect.
