ABSTRACT
We demonstrate wide-field real-time, and depth-resolved holographic imaging of various reflecting objects using the all-optical phase coherent photorefractive effect in ZnSe quantum wells. In contrast to current photorefractive quantum well devices, these devices use the coherence of excitons as a basis for holography. This has the advantage that the entire depth-resolved information of the object can be obtained from the brightness profile of the holographic image with a resolution of a few micrometers. In addition, the high diffraction efficiency and short refresh time of the phase coherent photorefractive effect allow high-speed video acquisition of moving objects.
