Paper Abstract

Optical processing methods appear to have a viable future when used as a component part of a hybrid system. The other parts of the hybrid systems are combinations of electronic, electro-optical, and digital subsystems. The important components that are linked with the optical systems are: input transducers for incoherent to coherent light conversion and for acoustic or electron beam to coherent light conversion, addressable filters, microprocessors, single fast detectors and detector arrays. The various classes of systems that use either Fourier plane or image plane detection are reviewed with illustrative examples given for each of the major classes of systems.
