Abstract

Fourier- and Hartley-related transforms are realized in a family of interferometers. The implementation of these interferometers as image correlators is investigated theoretically and experimentally with both coherent and spatially incoherent illumination. Several correlators that can be used for pattern recognition are studied and demonstrated experimentally as special cases.
