Inspired by the physics of noisy networks, we describe how the resultant photosynthetic activity can be optimized by damping down the effects of noisy light input. This material relates to a paper that appeared in the 26 June issue of Science, published by AAAS. The paper, by T. Arp at University of California, Riverside in Riverside, CA, and colleagues was titled, "Quieting a noisy antenna reproduces photosynthetic light-harvesting spectra."
