We have hosted an informal workshop jointly with the Institute of Experimental Quantum Optics, held by Fedor Jelezko, the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry led by Tanja Weil and Institute of Synthetische Bioarchitekturen led by Eva-Kathrin Sinner in Vienna. In attendance were also Prof. Harald Paulsen (Mainz), an expert in the molecular structure and function of light harvesting complexes, and Prof. Theo Lasser (EPFL), with ample expertise in single molecule imaging and detection.
The use of artificial membrane structures as well as chemically modified proteins that can be interfaced with controllable quantum probes can provide a novel route to explore quantum effects in biological environments. This meeting was a first attempt to bring people from different communities together to try and identify possible synergies.
