Paper Abstract

The operational characteristics of two alternative types of deformable mirror device (DMD) for optical signal processing applications, respectively designated the 'cantilever beam-inverted cloverleaf' and the 'flexure-hinged piston-type', have been simulated by full-scale parallel computer models. Attention is given to Fourier plane and correlation plane analysis results for each DMD type's use as an input device and as a phase-modulating filter device. Simulated system responses are evaluated for several correlator configurations, and the parallel algorithms used to both implement the models and perform the Fourier transforms are evaluated to ascertain the speed and effectiveness of the parallelism relative to serial algorithms.
