Watching energy transport through biomimetic nanotubes

An artificial light-harvesting device as simple as a double-walled molecular nanotube (black and red) is capable to adapt to changing illumination conditions (2 light beams) via exciton annihilation (ovals) thereby mimicking the essential functional elements from nature's design toolbox.
