Abstract

An optoelectronic implementation of the nonlinear morphological correlation by use of a threshold-decomposition technique and a joint transform correlator architecture is presented. This nonlinear morphological correlation provides improved image detection compared with standard linear optical pattern-recognition correlation methods. It also offers a more robust detection of low-intensity images in the presence of high-intensity patterns to be rejected.
