Abstract

Nonlinear information processing via two-beam coupling using thin-film organic photorefractive material is demonstrated. The organic material is found to possess superior response time and resolution compared to photorefractive bulk material. The possibility of designing dynamic range compression deconvolution for restoring blurred images embedded in a noisy environment is also demonstrated.
