Abstract

We demonstrate a dynamic all-optical image-intensity-inversion technique that uses self- and mutual-phase-modulation effects with a highly nonlinear nematic liquid-crystal film placed in an intermediate focal plane. This process requires submilliwatt optical power, responds in a few milliseconds, and can be realized over a very broad spectral range.
