Abstract

We present a new input configuration for the joint transform correlator called a complementary-reference joint transform correlator (CRJTC). The difference between the CRJTC and the existing joint transform correlator is that the CRJTC has an additional complementary reference in the input plane. We use a criterion defined as the ratio of the cross correlation between the target and the reference to the cross correlation between the target and the complementary reference to perform recognition. This ratio can attain its maximum if and only if the reference and the target are matched and if it is stable to the light-source intensity fluctuations; therefore it is unnecessary to normalize the input images. The CRJTC is suitable for the recognition of a binary-amplitude image only. The experimental demonstration of a CRJTC is given.
