Bacteriorhodopsin has been proved to be an outstanding candidate for reversible, transient, real time, and holographic material. Bacteriorhodopsin (BR), a retinal protein in the cell membranes of extremelyhalophilic archaea, is the simplest known biological energy-conversion device. This paper provides with the various features and structure of this protein. It also deals with the photochemical cycle through which the protein undergoes when illuminated by light there by storing the optical information. Its role as a transient holographic material and various other applications are also part of the discussion. Thus this paper provides complete overview of Bacteriorhodopsin’s role as an optical memory.
