Paper Abstract

An architecture which uses a single modulator in a joint transform correlator is proposed. Normally, the single most expensive component in an optical correlator is the spatial light modulator, thus this implementation would greatly reduce the cost and size of optical pattern recognition systems. The deformable mirror device (DMD) is a potential candidate for implementation of the single modulator correlator because of its ability to operate at KHz processing speeds.
