Paper Abstract

We perform computer simulations and theoretical modeling to predict the location of the best operating point of the two-beam coupling joint transform correlator. From this study, we determine that the highest speed and resolution as well as the optimal trade-off between correlation peak intensity, efficiency, and noise performance is realized when the holographic material is thin and operates with relatively small negative gain.
