They are somewhat like a satellite dish antenna, in that from 100 to 5,000 pigment molecules (called collectively the "antenna") are clustered around a central receiving unit, which is called the reaction center.
Computer simulations have shown that quantum coherences work in photosynthetic antennae to prevent excitations from getting trapped on their way to the reaction center, where the conversion to chemical energy begins.
