Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate image transmission through a noninstantaneous self-focusing medium. A partially spatially incoherent soliton is used to form a multimode waveguide in a photorefractive crystal, and the modes of that waveguide are used to transmit an incoherent image through this nonlinear medium.
