Abstract
The primary events of photosynthetic light reactions excel in efficiency and speed. They occur in highly organized protein-pigment aggregates that have been well characterized, both chemically and functionally. The recent structural characterization at the atomic level of some important components of the primary photosynthetic processes in bacteria helps our understanding of the underlying physical principles.
