Paper Abstract

This study demonstrates that the single-lens joint transform correlator is capable of position resolution accuracy on the order of a half micron. The single-lens joint transform correlator (JTC) is an extension of the chirp-encoded JTC in which the output lens has been eliminated. This is done by realizing that a Fresnel zone plate is formed in the joint power spectrum of the chirp-encoded JTC. This zone plate is illuminated with a plane wave and focuses to a point in the output plane. When chirp-encoding is used this way, it results in magnification of the output measurement. This is coupled with use of a higher order focus in the output plane to yield very high output resolution.
