The structure of photosynthetic light-harvester is examined from classical electrodynamics point of view. We can explain from our model the reason of the modular design of nature, the cross-section of the light harvester must be elliptical instead of circular, the shape must be cylinder instead of a ball, the function of the notch at the light-harvester, the non-heme iron at the reaction center, the chlorophylls must be dielectric instead of conductor, a mechanism to prevent damages from excess sunlight, which consists of the physical requirement. We learnt from nature for designing artificial light-harvester.
