Bacteriorhodopsin as an electronic conduction medium for biomolecular electronics

Author affiliations

Abstract

Interfacing functional proteins with solid supports for device applications is a promising route to possible applications in bio-electronics, -sensors, and -optics. Various possible applications of bacteriorhodopsin (bR) have been explored and reviewed since the discovery of bR. This tutorial review discusses bR as a medium for biomolecular optoelectronics, emphasizing ways in which it can be interfaced, especially as a thin film, solid-state current-carrying electronic element.
