Abstract

Usually edge enhancement of optical images is produced by introduction of loss into the low spatial frequency components of the image-bearing beam in the Fourier plane of a lens. We report on edge-enhanced phase-conjugate images from a mutually pumped conjugator accomplished by spatial filtering in the Fraunhofer diffraction region of the input beams. High-resolution (128–160 lines/mm) edge-enhanced images are obtained through traditional spatial filtering in the Fourier plane and in the Fraunhofer regime. Amplification of these edge-enhanced images is observed with some loss of high spatial resolution (50 lines/mm).
