Owing to the current interest in natural photosynthesis as a blueprint for solar energy conversion, we have incorporated robust bacterial photosynthetic membrane vesicles into a dye-sensitized solar cell in place of the dye sensitizer, together with the biological electrolytes quinone and cytochrome c as redox mediators. This represents the fabrication of a self-contained biohybrid solar cell for the first time from a natural anoxygenic phototrophic system, capable of converting abundant near-IR solar radiation into a unidirectional flow of electrical current.
