Paper Abstract

Real time holographic information treatment is needed in optical reversible nonlinear materials with cycle recording-erasure time of less than 40 ms. There were several applications of polymer films with protein bacteriorhodopsin (BR) for real time holographic information treatment [1 - 3]. This optical nonlinear material has very high photosensitivity (several milliwatt CW visible laser irradiation), extremely good reversibility [4]. Only properties of photochromic local response of BR polymer films were applied in all these works, but this optical medium is unique in combination of optical properties. In this work, superfast holographic recording mechanism is revealed in BR polymer films. Also it is proposed the application of this mechanism for efficient vibration registration and holographic correlator.
