A more powerful tool for binary image processing, i.e.,
logic-operated mathematical morphology (LOMM), is
proposed. With LOMM the image and the structuring element (SE)
are treated as binary logical variables, and the multiply
between the image and the SE in correlation is replaced with 16 logical
operations. A total of 12 LOMM operations are obtained. The
optical implementation of LOMM is described. The application of
LOMM and its experimental results are also presented.
