Paper Abstract

A compact planar configuration for performing optical correlation is described. It is comprised of two pairs of identical holographic lenses and a holographic filter. Each pair of lenses is recorded on a single substrate and together perform exact Fourier transformation. The light between the lenses propagates inside the substrate by means of total internal reflection. The design and recording considerations for each of the lenses along with experimental results for the overall planar correlator are presented.
