One day the engine used by plants and photosynthetic bacteria to convert sunlight to chemical energy could power a cell phone or laptop, or help produce hydrogen fuel for cars and homes.
And one University of Tennessee scientist will be able to say he did his part.
UT biochemist Barry Bruce and his collaborators at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology incorporated a plant's ability to make energy in a solid-state electronic device three years ago.
MIT researchers called it the world's first photosynthetic solid-state solar cell.
