Abstract

Using the property of dynamic complementary suppression modulated transmission of bacteriorhodopsin film, we propose and demonstrate an all-optical time-delay relay in an incoherent light system. The relay can last for a certain amount of time after the switch function of turn off (or turn on) is activated. Furthermore, the delay time can be adjusted by changing the lifetime of the M state and the intensities of blue and yellow beams.
