Paper Abstract

Two-dimensional acousto-optic (AO) correlators differ from frequency plane correlators in that multiplying, shifting, and adding, rather than Fourier transforming are used to obtain the correlations. Thus, manu of the available composite filter design techniques are not aimed at designing filters for use in AO correlators because they yield frequency-domain functions. In this paper, a method is introduced for designing filter impulse responses of arbitrary extent for implementation on AO correlators. These filters are designed to yield sharp correlation peaks. Simulation results are included to illustrate the viability of the proposed approach. Also included are some initial results from the first successful use of gray-scale composite filters on an AO correlator.
