The novel optical biomolecular properties of nanoscale, light harvesting 'antenna' structures (chlorosomes) were investigated for their potential use in nanoengineered biohybrid device applications. These photosynthetic units transfer photonic energy via a large Stokes shift while attaining high quantum efficiencies and ultra-fast energy transfer rates. Results from this feasibility study demonstrate the utility of exploiting selected properties of biomolecular constructs as functional, nanoscale hybrid device components for potential broad utility in biomedicine and biotechnology.
