Abstract: Light-driven biological processes have the reputation of being very complicated, but they achieve simple goals. Fundamentally, light drives the movement of hydrogen ions and electrons to accomplish important tasks including vision, and the storage of energy in carbohydrates or other molecules. These processes are mediated by beautiful molecular structures which rival Rube Goldberg machines in their complexity. We will take a look at some of these structures, and see the basics of how they work.
