Paper Abstract

This paper describes a case study in which 21 different low-frequency magnitude masks are applied in a set of ternary phase- amplitude filters (TPAFs) to discriminate between 4 different target images. The results of each mask are compared in terms of the height of the in-class correlation peak, the average in-class and out-of-class signal-to-noise ratios, and the discrimination ratio achieved by each filter. From these measurements, a correlator designer can select a preferred TPAF mask based on the relative importance of discrimination ability and optical efficiency. The resulting TPAF can be used as is, or improved further with other optimization techniques.
