Paper Abstract

Coherent optical systems are useful in performing, two major operations in the field of data reduction: spectral analysis and linear filtering. The latter operation includes convolution, auto-correlation and cross-correlation. This paper emphasizes some new developments which have bearing on data reduction, while referring only briefly to the theory behind coherent optical systems. Of particular interest is the development of a technique which allows more general operations by linear filtering., Examples of spectral analysis and character recognition will be presented.
