In nature, solar energy conversion occurs with a process called photosynthesis. Although the overall energy efficiency of the storage of the energy of sunlight into biomass is low, the individual photophysical processes that occur have a high quantum yield. In the latter sense, natural photosynthesis can serve as a valuable inspiration for the design of artificial light harvesting systems with the final goal of achieving efficient energy conversion. In this thesis, different approaches are explored to construct new artificial light harvesting systems with a special focus on the systematic study of the individual photophysical processes that take place...
