Abstract

The photoinduced dichroism in bacteriorhodopsin films has been investigated in view of its application for optical Fourier processing. A simple optical system for Fourier processing is demonstrated that does not require precise alignment and vibration isolation. The basic principle of operation relies on the intensity dependence of photoinduced dichroism in a bacteriorhodopsin film. Experimental results with Fourier processing are shown for edge enhancement.
