Paper Abstract

Classical matched spatial filters (CMSF) have been successfully employed for optical pattern recog-nition. To detect different signals, multiple matched spatial filters can be synthesized and several methods to perform the filters have been developed. Based on the sensitivity to input orientation of CMSF, we proposed a filter [1] where the signals to be detected were rotated by different angles when recording the hologram. Thus, the recognition of a signal is only achieved when the input in the filtering system has been suitably rotated. The number of signals simultaneously recorded was limited by the angular tolerance of symmetrical correlators, of the order of ten degrees [2] for CMSF.
