Paper Abstract

Coherent time-integrating optical correlators retain phase information. Due to slowly shifting laser phase and mechanical vibration, long-term phase reliability is not easily achieved. Coherent differential phase-shift keying can overcome these problems. An implementation of coherent differential demodulation suitable for use with optical correlators is described. The stochastic nature of the output of the CDD processor is investigated. Experimental results are summarized, and compared with a simulation of the CDD processor to validate the theoretical processor model.
