Abstract

Langmuir films of pure purple membranes with no added lipids were deposited on solid substrates by the horizontal transfer method. The photovoltaic properties of purple membrane Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films were studied in correlation with the photochemical cycle of bacteriorhodopsin. The morphology of the air-water interface film transferred onto a chip of silicon wafer is briefly described as a characterization for purple membrane LB films.
