This paper researches rhodopsin photon receptor functionality and energetics by applying quantum mechanics. It is important to examine the fundamentals of bioenergetics in order to coherently study mechanisms, processes and transitions in biomolecules. This will allow one to apply and utilize biophysics to the engineered devices and systems. Our goal is to study qualitatively and quantitatively study transitions exhibited by biomolecules to and assess their functionality. The solution of the aforementioned problems will advance knowledge and technological abilities. We outline the typifying prospect by devising sound advanced-performance sensing and processing devices.
