Abstract

We demonstrate that some neural-net image-processing operations can be realized in an all-optical manner by use of the natural diffraction property of light in conjunction with the photosensitivity and optical nonlinearities of a transparent thin film. An example of image edge enhancement is illustrated with photosensitive supranonlinear nematic liquid-crystal films.
