Abstract

We investigate possible performance improvements of coherent optical correlators by using an appropriate filter design. Multidecision strategies are often required in high-level image-processing tasks. For an optical system characterized by a given space–bandwidth product we show that the filter design plays a crucial role in satisfying both system and processing requirements, with respect to the optimization of the encoding capacity. This leads us to the definition of segmented composite filtering, which is discussed in terms of processing performance. This filtering is assessed experimentally in the case of a face-recognition problem.
