Retinal-protein complexes as optoelectronic components.

Abstract

Naturally occurring retinal-protein complexes (RPCs) have recently received much attention with regard to their potential use as light-sensitive elements for optical recording. The best-known RPC is bacteriorhodopsin (BR), a photosensitive protein from the membrane of extreme halophilic bacteria, which has been studied in great detail. The remarkably robust… (More)
