Photosynthesis disentangled?

from American Physical Society

Recent studies have indeed suggested that electronic excitation transfer in photosynthesis benefits from quantum entanglement. In a recent paper in Physical Review E, John Briggs and Alexander Eisfeld assert that under the conditions prevailing in photosynthesis (in particular, in the so-called Fenna-Matthews-Olson complex that lies at the heart of the process), energy transfer in a classical system is just as efficient as in its quantum counterpart. more
