Paper Abstract

The basic areas of use the unique characteristics of bacteriorhodopsin are defined by progress in creation of systems with a high degree of such molecules orientation. The maximal range of orientation can be achieved in the self-organized systems of supramolecules of optically active materials. The method of formation such structures is advanced. The structures were created in interstitial voids of cubic packing SiO2 nanospheres with a diameters of 240 - 250 nm (opal matrixes) on various substrates, including crystalline strontium-barium niobate and lithium niobate, which concerning to a class of strong piezoelectrics. The problem of bacteriorhodopsin introduction into opal matrixes is solved. The photoluminescence of the received nanocomposites is investigated under excitation by laser radiation in yellow spectrum range. The influence of substrate materials and temperature on photoluminescence spectra is discussed.
