Abstract: This thesis focuses on bridging the gap between natural and artificial systems by the structural and structure-function characterization of two kinds of natural photosynthetic antenna systems, a pigment-protein complex i.e. the LH2 complex, and the protein-free chlorosome supramolecular light harvesters. Chlorosomes contain the largest numbers of chromophores for any antenna system known in nature and are very efficient ultra-fast light harvesters. They provide an optimal starting point for a novel class of artificial antenna arrays for ultra-rapid feeding of energy into photocatalytic devices.
