Abstract : This investigation studied basic visual events in three particular areas. First, additional physical explanations for visual sensitivity at 589 nm have been obtained which suggests that there may be other monochromatic wavelengths with high visual sensitivity. Second, new femtosecond lasers have been applied to elucidate new, unresolved primary processes in visual transduction. Third, fundamental mechanisms in a unique, rapidly adjustable light filter based on molecules used in visual systems have been studied.
