Abstract:Bacteriorhodopsin (BR) has been studied as a material for molecular electronics applications. Thin film elements based on BR and its variants in polyvinylalcohol (PVA) have been produced to determine the photoelectrical properties of the material for the development of an optoelectronic sensor. The measurement setup and results of basic measurements including the photoelectrical signal, intensity and wavelength dependencies of the elements are described. The results show thatitis feasible to develop an arti?cial retina based on BR.
