Abstract

A technique of incoherent image addition and subtraction is described. The basic advantage of this technique is its use of white light processing, in which case the unavoidable artifact noise in the coherent optical processor may be removed. Although the incoherent processing technique that we have proposed is effective only in a 1-D operation, it also works for 2-D image addition and subtraction.
