Paper Abstract

In this paper we show how to use holographic photon echoes for the implementation of a variety of optical processing functions, including scanners, spectrum analyzers, time- integrating correlators, folded spectrum analyzers, ambiguity function processors, image sequence correlators, and folded image raster correlators. The combination of optical coherent transients operating as spatial-spectral holograms with acoustooptic deflectors and electrooptic modulators allows a variety of optical architectures to be implemented with substantially enhanced performance and functionality beyond that achievable by these technologies individually. We show how to utilize the basic architectures presented here as building blocks of more powerful and complex real-time optical processing systems.
