Abstract

An account is given on the generation of electric current by illuminating oriented purple membrane sheets containing a light-driven proton pump, bacteriorhodopsin. It is shown that charges move inside the molecules after absorbing a photon. The induced displacement current contains five components with different time constants and amplitudes. The first components appear in a very short time (
