Paper Abstract

Coupling theory is employed to analyze the coupling gain and a novel optical system is presented for image edge-enhancement by employing photorefractive two-wave coupling in BaTiO3 crystal, in which the ordinarily discarded background light is recycled as the pump source to amplify the signal light. Further, we demonstrate the principle of optical correlation and compare the discrimination capability of two kinds of correlators by computer simulation, in one of which input images are edge-enhanced and in the other the ones do not experience edge-enhancement. At last, we draw a conclusion that edge-enhancement preprocessing can improve discrimination capability effectively.
