Abstract

The error sources present in a time-integrating acoustooptic correlator are considered. They are classified and modeled into three categories: input plane errors; frequency plane errors; and detector plane errors. To facilitate error analyses, performance measures are defined and quantified for an error-free system for detection and delay estimation applications.
