An implementation of an acousto-optic heterodyning image processor was reported earlier [ Opt. Lett.4, 317 ( 1979)]. However, details of that report are limited only to the confirmation of the basic principle of operation. In this paper, we present and emphasize the mathematical structure of the processor. We also compare this processor with other kinds of scanning and nonscanning processors. The analysis is then extended to the defocused case, where the optical transfer function is derived. A…

Coaxial scanning holography.

A coaxial scanning holography (CSH) capable of realizing scanning holographic with high stability and low complexity by forming a scanning beam in a single optical path using a geometrical phase shift is proposed.

Three-dimensional remote sensing by optical scanning holography.

The scanning holography technique is applied to three-dimensional reflective objects for the first time to the knowledge and the unique requirements for such a system are addressed.

Gaussian Beam Analysis of Optical Scanning Holography

A detailed theoretical treatment based on Gaussian beam theory is provided for optical scanning holography [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A2, 512 ( 1985)]. Topics addressed include the derivation of the impulse

Imaging properties of scanning holographic microscopy.

It is described how it is possible, by an appropriate choice of the reconstruction algorithm, to obtain an ideal transfer function equal to unity up to the cutoff frequency, even in the presence of aberrations.

Three-dimensional point spread functions of an optical heterodyne scanning image processor.

The imaging properties of an optical heterodyne scanning image processor are derived in terms of the two pupils and an important 3-D imaging application in scanning holography is shown by deriving its3-D point spread functions and comparing them with conventional 3- D imaging systems.

Scanning Holography Using a Modulated Linear Pupil: Simulations

In this paper an electron microscopic image of diameter 80 – 120 nm and of dimensions 180×220 pixels is used as a test object to fabricate Fresnel zone plate hologram. The author proposes a different

System characterization of apodized acousto-optic Bragg cells

An acousto-optic cell can be characterized in terms of the spatial impulse response or a transfer function that relates the angular plane-wave spectrum of the output light field to that of the input

Edge enhancement with incoherent optics.

A new approach to optical signal processing has recently been introduced, and a pupil plane mask is employed in an imaging system, thereby creating a desired filter response on the unconstrained frequency offset.

A method of incoherent optical-image processing using synthetic holograms*

Under coherent illumination, the interference between signal and noise produces an amplification of the noise. That is why image processing by optical methods may be done better with incoherent light

A broad class of hybrid methods is investigated that employs two pupils in the synthesis of bipolar-real impulse responses and the mathematical structure of these syntheses is presented along with limitations in the presence of various constraints.
