Learning from nature has inspired the invention of intelligent materials and devices. Inspiration from the retina, which can serve as a light-driven cross-membrane proton pump, a photoelectric conversion system based on smart gating hydroxide ion-driven nanochannels and photoinduced reversible pH changes is demonstrated. This photoelectric conversion system closely mimics the mechanism of the retina and shows potential applications for future energy demands.
