Abstract

The computer generation of sidelobeless multiple-object discriminant correlation filters has been stressed. We propose to synthesize the filter functions by use of the simulated-annealing algorithm. By this method the filters can be obtained as discrete-type computer-generated holograms. The filters can suppress the sidelobes and provide sharp correlation peaks. A computer simulation and an optical experiment were performed, and the expected correlation responses were obtained.
