Photochromic films with a natural protein bacteriorhodopsin as a light-sensitive material have been known. Information storage in such films is no more than one minute. We have developed films in which photodecomposition of the protein-chromophore complex takes place during photoinduced hydroxylaminolysis. The spectral product is retinaloxime with the absorption band maximum at 380 nm. The irreversibility of retinaloxime formation permits this process to be used for production of memory systems… CONTINUE READING
