Paper Abstract

A generic three-plane optical processor is investigated from a statistical viewpoint. The means and the mutual coherence functions of the output field amplitude and intensity are derived. The photodetection process is then studied, and the mean and the autocorrelation function of the output current are found, thus establishing the functional form of the signal dependence of noise at the processor output. An integral equation and a series expression are also presented for the probability density function of the output signal. A special case is then analyzed, and the use of these expressions is demonstrated. Finally, device models to be used within this framework are summarized.
