Squeezing light into nanometric gaps: A live view of protein diffusion in the photosynthetic membrane

Plants derive their energy from light, but light intensity and colour vary strongly throughout the day. During evolution, plants have developed mechanisms for growing well under these fluctuating conditions. The researchers will study these mechanisms with molecular precision. For this, an advanced microscopic technique will be developed.
