Paper Abstract

Dyes fixed in polymer matrices can generate a phase-conjugate (PC) wave through several different mechanisms such as saturable absorption, trans-cis photoisomerism and photochemical irreversible changes in absorption coefficient and/or refractive index. PC waves generated in dye-doped films have optical properties which are not found in photorefractive materials, and their proper use allows one to perform three types of real-time PC interferometry. Real-time PC interferometries for (1) detecting the phase difference between two objects. (2) subtraction in amplitude of two objects, and (3) detecting a moving object in a scene were demonstrated in a standard backward degenerate four-wave mixing (BDFWM) arrangement. An erythrosin-B- doped polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film was used in (1) and (2), and a methyl- orange-doped PVA film was used in (3).
