Paper Abstract

We investigate the optimal designs of binary phase and amplitude filters (BPAF5) for the key correlation metrics of peak intensity, peak-to-correlation energy, SNR, and discrimination. These filters may be implemented on binary polarization-rotating spatial light modulators. We present simulation results comparing performance to conventional binary phase-only filters (BPOFs) and illustrating trade-offs between the different performance criteria in terms of the filter design parameter. We also extend the generalization to three-level phase and amplitude filters with a nonzero region of support and demonstrate that optimal three-level BPAFs can provide clearly superior performance to optimal three-level BPOFs.
