Paper Abstract

A real-time phase visualization technique is proposed which utilizes a phase conjugating mirror that reflects an image of the phase derivative formed within an optical differentiation system. The technique compensates for the phase variation, and the amplitude variation is handled by a coherent optical integration system, allowing real-time quantitative visualization of the actual object phase. Computer simulation and experimental results demonstrate the implementation of the phase contour visualization.
