We propose a quantum information scheme that builds on the interference properties of entangled ion states that are transiently confined by local potentials within the permeation path of voltage-gated, ion-conducting membrane proteins. We show, that the sub-molecular organization of parts of the protein, as revealed by the recent progress in high-resolution atomic-level spectroscopy and accompaning molecular dynamics simulations, carries a logical coding potency that goes beyond the pure catalytic function of the channel, subserving the transmembrane crossing of an electrodiffusive barrier. As we argue that 'within channel states' can become super-correlated with the environment , this also sheds new light on the role of noise in controlling the access of ions to voltage-gated ion channels ('channel noise').
The multiple scattering theory which produces Doppler-like wavelength shift,even, when the source and the intervening medium are at rest with respect to the observer has been recently verified in laboratory experiments. In the experiments, light from Hg lines propagating through anisotropic plasma medium has been shown to produce redshift as well as broadening. These results may signify important developments in statistical optics as well as in observational cosmology.
