A new kind of optical novelty filtering by an incoherent light system is presented that is based on a special property of dynamic complementary suppression modulated transmission in bacteriorhodopsin film By simplifying the energy system, we establish a theoretical model, and our experimental results are compared with those reached by numerical simulation of the novelty filter.
