Paper Abstract

The effect of protein and matrix modifications on the photoanisotropic properties is studied for developing the concept of impact upon the main optical properties of the dynamic optical material based on bacteriorhodopsin (BR) both interaction of transmembrane protein--chromophore complex BR with matrix and interaction of protein opsin with chromophore retinal. Also possibility of the application of BR-films for the light polarization modulator is proposed.
