Paper Abstract

This paper describes a microcomputer-based hybrid processor which has been developed around two optical processors: (a) the coded-phase optical processor and (b) the confocal optical feedback system. The hybrid processor includes: (a) a microcomputer-controlled laser scanner which can produce both holographic and zero-order spatial filters, (b) an image analysis system based on video electronics which can digitize, store, analyze, and display optical output images, and (c) a liquid crystal light valve to provide a real-time input to the optical processors. The major capabilities of these three subsystems are described.
