I have been recalling about what were being discussed during the photosynthesis workshop. The workshop was a very fruitful one which comprised a large span of knowledge from various points of view, from biology to photonics. They (the speakers) brought forwards the findings from what they (and their supersmart PhD students of course) have been working on. Some talked about the ‘miracles’ they found biosystems, while others preached on the importance of the use of metal nanoparticles in harvesting solar energy.
For your information, the workshop was mainly initiated by the abundance of unused solar energy that have been showered on this Earth by the mighty Sun without getting bored. It was said that if we were able to harvest the energy of sunlight showered upon the Earth’s surface for an hour, we would be able to provide electricity needed by the Earth dwellers for one year.
