Paper Abstract

The possibility of layer-by-layer reading of information in photoreversible medium based on bacteriorhodopsin is considered. We propose to use for information reading the light with wavelength in the absorption spectrum of K- intermediate, which is shifted relative to the absorption spectra of B- and M-intermediates into the long wavelength region. For layer marking, the high concentration of the K- form bacteriorhodopsin molecules is produced by means of two light waves with the wavelength in the absorption spectra of B- and M-intermediates, propagating in opposite directions. The condition of high quality of marking is the sufficiently high clarification of the medium caused by light waves. The stationary as well as nonstationary regimes of marking are considered. The possibility of reproducing the temporal sequences of layer-by-layer written images in nonstationary regime of marking is demonstrated.
