Paper Abstract

Matrices of optical components (like LEDs, microlenses, microzone plates, microspatial filters) are used in some arrangements to obtain the optical transformation from an area of a frontal plane to a point and vice versa. By use of these matrices the following arrangement are established: a matrix optical relay-system, a multichannel optoelectronic hybrid computer, an optical system for pattern recognition by spatial multichannel filtering, and uniform illumination system. The established relationships are applied to calculate the positions, the component sizes, and the system performance. Matrix configuration is shown to be advantageous for maximizing the performance for plane-point correlation and, also, for a miniature solution.
