Submission + - Quantum coherence found fueling photosynthesis (arstechnica.com)

Gaygirlie writes: "Ars Technica has posted an interesting article about new findings regarding quantum physics and photosynthesis. Their excerpt for the article: "Physicists have found the strongest evidence yet of quantum effects fueling photosynthesis. Multiple experiments in recent years have suggested as much, but it has been hard to be sure. Quantum effects were clearly present in the light-harvesting antenna proteins of plant cells, but their precise role in processing incoming photons remained unclear."

For those unaware of what coherence and quantum coherence means I suggest reading the appropriate Wikipedia page: Coherence (generic) and Quantum coherence"
