A new method of one-way image transmission through a thick dynamic distorter without the need for a reference beam or four-wave mixing is demonstrated. In this method there are only one object beam and one sampling beam. The response time of the photorefractive crystal must be much longer than the fluctuation period of the dynamic distorter. Thus the crystal responds only to the time-averaged intensity pattern of a rapidly varying object beam. The images, reconstructed with high fidelity, are picked up through the photorefractive fanning effect.
