The discovery of long-lived coherence in light-harvesting systems has attracted a lot of attention from many other fields beside biology. In this talk, the main machinery in green plants, as well as in photosynthetic bacteria will be briefly introduced along with recent experimental progresses via methods originated from quantum optics. Based on the anti-bunching effect observed in these experiments, I will show how the mechanism of photo-blockade may be important in light-harvesting systems as a protection from damage by excess sunlight.
