Abstract

Films of oriented bacteriorhodopsin have been formed in polyvinyl alcohol with excellent optical quality. Images with high contrast have been impressed and erased on these films. Second-harmonic microscopy has been used to read the image on a bacteriorhodopsin–polyvinyl alcohol film without erasure. The potential of these films for molecular information storage and computation is discussed.
