Paper Abstract

Coherent processors, offer a myriad of complicated optical signal processings. However, coherent processing systems are usually plagued with coherent noise. These difficulties have prompted us to look at optical processing from a new standpoint. To consider whether it is necessary for all optical processing operations to be carried out by coherent light, we have found that there are several optical processing techniques which can be carried out by partially coherent light or white-light. One utilizes a spatially incoherent light to perform complex data processing, which has been proposed by Lohmann [1], Rhodes [2], and Stoner [3] and the other utilizes a white-light source, pursued by Leith and Roth [4], Yu [5], and Morris and George [6].
