Spin-selective recombination kinetics of a model chemical magnetoreceptor

Author affiliations

Abstract

We determine the spin-selective kinetics of a carotenoid–porphyrin–fullerene triad that has previously been used to establish the principle that a photochemical reaction could form the basis of the magnetic compass sensor of migratory birds and show that its magnetic sensitivity can be understood without invoking quantum Zeno effects.
