Abstract

We describe a method of performing image classification with a chirp-encoded joint transform correlator. In the proposed system the reference images and the input image that is to be classified are placed in different input planes of the joint transform correlator. As a result, different output planes of the correlator are associated with each reference image. The input image is classified on the basis of the intensity and the spatial position of the correlation peak. The reference images and the input image can be positioned in one input plane with glass blocks of different thicknesses placed on each reference image. This produces the same effect as having the reference images and the input image in different planes. Analytical expressions, computer simulations, and optical experiments are presented to investigate the performance of the chirp-encoded joint transform correlator for image classification.
