Maximizing photosynthetic productivity. a The maximal volumetric biomass productivity \(P_E\) as a function of the dilution rate D for two different incident light intensities \(I_0\). b The population density \(\varrho\) as a function of D. The maximal productivity \(P_E\) represents a trade-off between a high population density and a high dilution rate D, resulting in a maximal value for intermediate dilution rates, well below the maximal growth rate of the strain
