Abstract

In our previous paper we proposed using successively binary cosine and sine filters and combining the correlation intensities for rotation-invariant phase-only circular harmonic correlation. This paper presents an alternative method that uses a single filter. We present theory and optical and computer experimental results to show that, with a spatial frequency carrier, the binary phase-only filter [1, −1] and the binary filter [1, 0] yield the impulse response of a continuous phase-only filter. Compared with conventional computer-generated holographic filters, the binary phase-only filter and the binary filter have no representation-related error, require a minimum space–bandwidth product, and may be implemented in a spatial light modulator.
