83. Spatial frequency selective reconstruction using Fourier transform holograms generated in functionalized mesogenic composites, A. Emoto, H. Ono and N. Kawatsuki, Liq. Cryst. 30 (2003) 1201-1206.


We have demonstrated spatial frequency selective reconstruction (SFSR) of two-dimensional optical images by using functionalized mesogenic composites possessing real-time holographic capability. The two-dimensional optical image was Fourier transformed by a lens and part of the spatial frequency was brought into interference with the reference beam in the Raman-Nath regime. The SFSR images were observed in the self-diffraction patterns and we calculated the expected reconstructed images which were in good agreement with the observed images.
