Optical applications of biomolecules

M.J. Ranaghan, N.L. Wagner, M.N. Sandberg and R.R. Birge,     University of Connecticut, USA

Abstract:

From kinematics to molecular machines, biologically inspired technologies harness and enhance the intrinsic properties of naturally occurring materials and systems for applied technologies. Bacteriorhodopsin (BR) represents the most studied protein for photonic applications, and has found use in artificial retinas, associative and volumetric memories, optical limiters, photovoltaic cells and other devices. The native BR protein is rarely optimal for device applications, and genetic engineering plays an important role in the optimization process. In addition, new retinal proteins such as proteorhodopsin ...
