Leafy plants are miraculous self-sufficient factories capable of transforming solar energy into chemical energy through photosynthesis.

Researchers have found a way to combine a technology that concentrates sunlight, called a luminescent solar concentrator (LSC), with very thin micro channels through which liquid can be pumped.

The result is a tiny leaf-shaped generator that focuses sunlight on chemicals flowing through tiny channels at high enough intensity to generate the necessary chemical reactions to make medicine.
