Bacteriorhodopsin (bR) originating from the purple membrane of the bacterium Halobacterium Halobium has been extensively studied during the last few years for a number of optical applications. Extending the lifetime of the intermediate M-state in bR chemically, has been found to improve the sensitometric properties of bR. In this paper, a new method of extending the lifetime of the M-state in the bacteriorhodopsin photocycle is presented. The method pertains to the use of 18- crown-6 ether as an agent to extend the M-state lifetime.
