Dynamic properties of bacteriorhodopsin exposed to ultrashort light pulses
Bacteriorhodopsin (BR) in its metastable form was used for pulsed holographic recording at λ ∼ 400 nm. It is shown that the properties of BR are insensitive to changes in the writing light's pulse width. When holograms are recorded in the BR stable form (λ ∼ 600 nm), the sensitivity of the medium and the diffraction efficiency of those holograms are reduced proportionally to the decrease in the light's pulse width. © 2000 Optical Society of America.
