Paper Abstract

We propose a general and fully automated procedure that enables the self-correction of the errors and performance losses produced by the misalignment of the components of an optical correlator. This method is simple, is carried out entirely by software, and has minimal operating constraints. There are no moving parts and no extra hardware is required.
