Abstract

We introduce a modification of the nonlinear morphological correlation for optical rotation-invariant pattern recognition. The high selectivity of the morphological correlation is conserved compared with standard linear correlation. The operation performs the common morphological correlation by extraction of the information by means of a circular-harmonic component of a reference. In spite of some loss of information good discrimination is obtained, especially for detecting images with a high degree of resemblance. Computer simulations are presented, as well as optical experiments implemented with a joint transform correlator.
