My question is a continuation from the previous question:Is Quantum Biocomputing ahead of us?. Considering that there exist many biological processes with a quantum nature present (Photosynthesis, Electron transport chain, etc). And, since this biological quantum processes are quite optimal in terms of efficiency and yield:
I am wondering if these could be mimicked by engineers/scientists to improve the actual possibilities in quantum computation. Let me explain a bit deeper my question: Nature is extremely efficient. Especially intracellular processes are well optimized in both time and space this, with their high yield, can be studied in order to check the properties/structural features that contribute to such efficiency. Please note that I am not suggesting or asking about the possibility of using directly biological molecules or processes but to try to extract what makes them ultra-efficient and used such knowledge in the design of particular architectures. My question is related to this, is that an actual field of research? are we now dealing with the 'natural quantum processes imitation'?
