Abstract:

This patent discloses a multiple-invariant, space variant optical processor in which two functions described by any number of separate distortion parameters can be correlated with no loss in signal-to-noise ratio of the correlation. The unknown distortion parameters can also be determined in this scheme. Experimental confirmation of the key step, determination of the non-linear phase portion of a complex optical transform can be provided. Author
