Paper Abstract

Intrinsic properties of biological materials making them outstanding candidates for technical applications are briefly summarized in the paper. The origin of the light- driven optical non-linearity of bacteriorhodopsin (BR) is demonstrated. The fields of the most effective application of BR are analyzed on the basis of the last year's scientific publications. Attention is attracted to adaptive measuring interferometers with dynamic holographic beamscouplers based on BR. Several examples of such interferometers are discussed introducing one of the most promising BR application.
