Abstract

A simulation and experimental investigation of a recently proposed, compact, phase-conjugating correlator is undertaken. The effects of noise and other distortions in the input image and in the correlator filter plane are considered. As with other phase-only designs, the phase-conjugating correlator is sensitive to distortion of the input image while being robust in the presence of filter-plane distortions; this robustness is enhanced by the phase-conjugating property of the design.
