Abstract

Coupling theory is employed to analyze coupling gain and a new optical system is proposed for image edge enhancement, in which the ordinarily discarded background light is recycled as a pump source to amplify the signal light. We demonstrate the principle of optical correlation and compare the discrimination capability of two kinds of correlators by computer simulation. The results show that edge enhancement preprocessing can improve discrimination capability effectively.
