    I am researching protein dye added emulsion making and its possible to use these emulsions as cpu , they change with different polarizer light to conduct as logical gates.
    Is there such an experiment with normal silver film , may be we can print different qualities with different polarized lights.

    So this is a computational element and not a memory? A developed negative would in essence form a 'layer' of a combinatorial equation? Would the result be recording on a piece of film, paper, or other light sensitive technology?

    Light and protein works like an transistor. Not only memory, if you use it , it records 5000 lines per mm hologram recording medium or as a 3D recording medium with using big cubes also. Its a optical computer where Soviets used as radar identification computer. Rhodopsin is the fastest transistor in the world.

    The advantage , you can grow bactery in a bottle , extract rhodopsin and mix with a polymer to set. After that if you record a photograph , it carries it for years but if you light it with blue light , it deletes it. 10000000 times recordable and deletable.

    Fascinating. Please post links to material.

    There are ten thousand free online journal articles at web. Search as bacteriorhodopsin or rhodopsin at us databases , pubmed is a start.
