Abstract

We investigate the possible application of a modified deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-dye system for dynamic processing of optical information, e.g., optical correlation. The system consists of a biopolymeric matrix made of DNA substituted with the cationic surfactant molecule cetyltrimethyl-ammonium chloride (CTMA) and doped with a photochromic Disperse Red 1 dye. Fast dynamics (millisecond range of rise and fall times) of output correlation signal formation was measured in a joint Fourier transform optical correlator experimental setup. Full reversibility of the correlation signal and reproducibility were observed even after long-time exposures.
