Abstract

We investigated the correlation performance of a joint fractional Fourier-transform correlator (JFRTC) using computer simulation results. We present a mathematical analysis suggesting use of processing techniques based on a nonlinear transformation and fractional-order fractional-power fringe-adjusted filter to attain improved performance in terms of discrimination sensitivity and input space–bandwidth utilization. Optimal noise performance for the JFRTC is predicted in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise. An all-optical implementation scheme based on incoherent erasure in a photorefractive crystal is proposed.
