Photosynthesis - is the process of coverting light energy to chemical energy and storing it as sugar.

There are two parts to photosynthesis, the light reaction happens in the thylakoid membrane and converts light energy to chemical energy. Chlorophyll and other pigments such as beta-carotene are organized in clusters in the thylakoid membrane and are involved in the light reaction.
