Light-harvesting nanohybrids (LHNs) are systems composed of an inorganic nanostructure associated with an organic pigment that have been exploited to improve the light-harvesting performance over individual components. The present study is focused on developing a potential LHN, attained by the functionalization of dense arrays of ZnO nanorods (NRs) with a biologically important organic pigment hematoporphyrin (HP), which is an integral part of red blood cells (hemoglobin).
