A brief survey is given on the elementary reactions of photosynthesis, with an emphasis on the functional separation into reaction centers that perform, after excitation, an ultrafast charge separation across the photosynthetic membrane, and light-harvesting complexes that absorb light and transfer the excitation energy to the reaction centers. The basic concepts are compared to those of photovoltaics.
