Photons, which can excite chlorophyll in thylakoid membranes, have peculiar properties that will revolutionize how we’ll use computers in the next few decades: “Data can be encoded in light pulses by modulating the amplitude or phase of the light. Single photons and other quantum light states can also be generated in a variety of complex shapes and encoding information in these different shapes could be an efficient way to securely transmit data. Indeed, a single photon shape could represent, for example, any letter in the alphabet, or even a quantum combination (or superposition) of several letters.” — Via.
