Paper Abstract

We found that in nematic liquid crystals doped with methyl-red dye or an azobenzene liquid crystal, the orientational optical nonlinearity can be dramatically enhanced. A concise review of the fundamental mechanisms involved and some application in all-optical image processing, optical limiting and switchable storage lens holograms is presented.
