Abstract

The requirements on and the performance of holographic Fourier transform lenses for a matched-filter optical processor are discussed. The holographic aberrations were analyzed using a ray-tracing computer program, and holographic lenses were fabricated and assembled into an optical processor. Analysis and experimental results show that holographic optics are capable of processing images of large space–bandwidth product and can be an attractive alternative to conventional optics.
