Paper Abstract

Photorefractive materials have been used as the nonlinear optical media in various optical computing and image processing applications. Devices such as passive phase conjugate mirrors, image subtractors, optical limiters and thresholders can be constructed with materials whose index of refraction is a function of light intensity. It is the purpose of this paper, then to describe some of these materials on the basis of their nonlinear optical response.
