Nonlinear transmission properties in bacteriorhodopsin embedded photonic crystal

Y. Okada-Shudo, Teruya Ishihara

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Transmission spectra and photoinduced transmission change are observed in periodic waveguide which consist of a quartz grating substrate and a thin protein film of bacteriorhodopsin. We propose a scheme to achieve all optical switching using the photoinduced refractive index change of bacteriorhodopsin.
