Paper Abstract

With bacteriorhodopsin (BR) it will be demonstrated that biological systems--optimized by nature under evolutionary conditions--can be applied with great success to solve material requirements in optical applications. The possibility of genetic engineering further increases the technical applicability of these systems. The application of BR and its mutants as molecular processing units in optical data processing and storage will be shown in several examples.
