Bacterio Rhodopsin Memory Seminar Report, Abstract

An Introduction to Bacterio Rhodopsin Memory

In todays hi-tech world, computing devices have become faster. Advanced computing devices have demanded the need of smaller storage devices with high capacity. This has led to the use of various technologies, to make such storage devices.  There are various alternatives that one can use to store data. One such prominent alternative is Bacterio Rhodopsin. This is a photosensitive protein.  It is obtained from bacteria that live in salt. These bacteria can be used as memory to store data. Stable states of protein are used to store data in binary form. This bacteria is found in two dimensional crystalline form. When Bacteriorhodopsin is exposed to light, certain intermediates change structures.

Reading and writing of data are performed with laser beams. One of these arrays is set to green. This laser activates photocycle of protein. The second array of lasers is programmed to illuminate the region where the data is to be written. Data is read using selective absorption of red light. This method is still in nascent stage and not fully ready to use in modern computers. It combines the features of modern technology and biology. This is a relatively new field and needs lot of research. However, it is a promising way of storing and retrieving data effectively.

We prepared and published this seminar abstract for final year engineering students seminar research. You should do your own research additional to this information before presenting your seminar.
