There have been some major advances in artificial photosynthesis. By combining biocompatible light-capturing nanowire arrays with bacterial populations, a new artificial photosynthesis system may offer a win/win situation for the environment.

The new artificial photosynthetic device is a hybrid system of semiconducting nanowires and bacteria that mimic the natural photosynthetic process by which plants use the energy in sunlight to synthesize carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water. However, this new artificial photosynthetic system ...
