Abstract

The fractional derivative spatial-filtering operator is useful for image-processing applications, particularly for examination of phase objects. Experimental implementation is difficult because the mask function combines both amplitude and phase. We present a simple one-dimensional analysis of the fractional derivative operation and note similarities with the fractional Hilbert transform. We demonstrate how to encode these amplitude and phase masks using a phase-only liquid-crystal spatial light modulator and present experimental results. Finally, we introduce a radially symmetric extension of this operation that is more useful for objects having an arbitrary shape.
