Paper Abstract

Optical morphological processor implementations and results are provided using a correlator architecture. The multifunctional MIMD (multiple-instruction multiple-data) advantages of the optical correlator realization used are noted together with the role for optics in the various levels of computer vision. Filter realizations of the morphological structuring elements (SEs) as matched spatial filters (MSFs) are considered. All major morphological processing operations are described and optical laboratory data for many cases are provided to unify much of our prior work on this topic. I .
