Paper Abstract

Converging light is used for a reference beam in constructing the Fourier transform of a filter for use in a 2-D correlator. This eliminates the need for the inverse Fourier transform lens used for performing correlation. We analyze this approach and demonstrate correct performance with optical experiments. Further, we propose a compact optical correlator system that uses only one curved element for both constructing filters and performing correlation.
