Paper Abstract

Correlation, convolution, and frequency filtering of images or signals may be achieved in noncoherent light using the optical transfer function (OTF) of an imaging system. Bipolar or complex-valued data and filter functions are represented in light intensity by the phase of a spatial frequency or temporal frequency carrier. This permits diffraction limited processing of complex-valued data which is input and output as patterns of light intensity.
