Paper Abstract

The nonlinear common path interferometer is a simple and robust single lens optical processor using an intensity dependent medium placed on its geometrical focal plane to observe deformed wavefronts. It is described either as a nonlinear inteferometer or as an image processor. We demonstrate that this system requires excess surrounding illumination beyond the geometrical boundaries of the disturbance to operate. We discuss recent progress on this setup. In particular, the effect of large phase changes in the filter and the dynamics of the filter formation.
