Paper Abstract

A new binary joint transform correlator (BJTC) algorithm has been implemented which compares a target fingerprint with six reference fingerprints. The correlator uses the frame subtraction technique to achieve very dense packing of the images in this input plane. Six 128 X 64 reference prints and a target print are displayed simultaneously on a 256 X 256 input SLM. A peak-to-noise ratio (PNR) of 12.7 dB has been demonstrated experimentally, and a potential for a PNR as high as 41 dB is shown using simulation. This is compared to a PNR of 6.8 dB achieved without using frame subtraction. This demonstrates that through use of frame subtraction the input separation constraints for the BJTC are eliminated and performance is improved.
