Paper Abstract

Incoherent optical pattern recognition has been demonstrated with a simple setup using photorefractive BaTiO3 crystal. The input patterns to be identified can be transmitted into the system with complete incoherent light. The setup does not required pre-fabricated filters for its operation and thus is a real-time system. The working principles of the systems are the photorefractive beam fanning effect and the degenerate four-wave mixing.
