Abstract

An adaptive phase-input joint transform correlator for pattern recognition is presented. The input of the system is two phase-only images: input scene and reference. The reference image is generated with a new iterative algorithm using phase-only synthetic discriminant functions. The algorithm takes into account calibration lookup tables of all optoelectronics elements used in optodigital experiments. The designed adaptive phase-input joint transform correlator is able to reliably detect a target and its distorted versions embedded into a cluttered background. Computer simulations are provided and compared with those of various existing joint transform correlators in terms of discrimination capability, tolerance to input additive noise, and to small geometric image distortions. Experimental optodigital results are also provided and discussed.
