Abstract

A joint transform correlator has been constructed by a spatial light modulator that uses the electroabsorption effect of GaAs crystal and operates at a high frame rate a TV camera with logarithmic response and a personal computer. In the system, logarithmic values of joint power spectra generated in an optical system were electrically digitized and inverse-Fourier transformed. The system has accomplished the operation of correlation with a throughput time smaller than 10 ms per an input image.
