Abstract

We propose what we believe to be a novel and simple method for optical symmetry filtering, using anisotropic self-diffraction in BaTiO3 crystals. This method allows us to distinguish a centrosymmetric pattern from a noncentrosymmetric pattern easily with scale invariance. It is self-referential; no extra reference element is required. Both the theory and the experiment are demonstrated.
