Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has become a popular method for investigating biomolecular interactions. A new variant of this technique, coupled plasmon-waveguide resonance (CPWR) spectroscopy, allows the characterization of anisotropic biological membranes. Plasmon resonance can therefore be used to study the molecular events involved in a wide variety of membrane processes, including energy conversion and signal transduction.
