Abstract
A nonlinear spatial filtering based on light-induced birefringence change in dye-doped liquid crystals has been applied to defect inspection of periodic structure. Photoisomer- ization of azo-dye molecules leads to local reorientation of the liquid-crystal molecules, by which polarization of the transmitted light is modulated depending on the incident light intensity. By selecting suitable polarization of the transmitted light, a self-aligned spatial filtering is realized. The filtering performances have been experimentally investigated.
