Paper Abstract

We describe a 1-D space integrating optical processor that can perform position-invariant 2-D image correlation by 1-D scanning the input image over a 2-D reference image along a coordinate axis, which we shall refer to as the x axis in a Cartesian coordination system. The 2-D reference function is a position-invariant filter that is designed using distortion-invariant pattern recognition techniques to provide tolerance to misalignments along the y axis between the input image and the reference function during the 1-D spatial correlation. Applications of this system to phase-encoded image recognition and fingerprint recognition are described.
