Fig. 1

Contrast reversal of a transparency using dyed plastic: (A) image obtained from the irradiated plastic when the analyzer was crossed; (B) analyzer was slightly rotated with respect the crossed position.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Results obtained when polarizing image processing methods were used. The object consisted of two circular apertures partially overlapping: (a) subtraction; (B) addition; (C) (D) the apertures separately. All these operations are obtained by selecting the right angular position of the reading red light.

Interferograms given by (recording) green and (reading) red light: (A) interferogram given by two coherent and perpendicularly polarized green beams when a polarizer at 45° was interposed in their path; (B) the interferogram given by red light after the recording step; (C) interferogram given by the plastic after a slight rotation of the analyzer in the counterclockwise direction; (D) interferogram when the analyzer was rotated in the clockwise direction. Note that (C) and (D) are complementary.
