Multiplexed holograms recorded in purple-membraned bacteriorhodopsin (BR) films are investigated. Calculations of the reconstruction selectivity and crosstalk noise of BR-based holographic memory, along with experimental results, are presented. We also show that the properties of BR films can be effectively used for constructing holographic free-space optical interconnections that are reconfigurable in real time.
