New photodetector design inspired by plant photosynthesis

Researchers have developed a new type of high-efficiency photodetector inspired by the photosynthetic complexes plants use to turn sunlight into energy. Photodetectors are used in cameras, optical communication systems and many other applications to turn photons into electrical signals. The new detector design uses unique quasiparticles known as polaritons to achieve long-range energy transport in an organic material.
