Paper Abstract

Several designs for a reduced resolution optical correlator are proposed. The design of reduced resolution filters by multiresolution wavelet analysis (MWA) or by downsampling is extended to spatial light modular with fill-factors less than one. A reduced resolution optical correlator is constructed based on one of the above designs, and a comparison of MWA and downsampling filters is performed for different size targets. The experimental results show good qualitative agreement with simulation; however, the first-order correlation peaks were found to be greater for the experimental results. A possible reason for this is suggested and a new technique for measuring the fill-factor is proposed.
