Adaptive nonlinear correlators with improved discrimination capability: Parameter optimization

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Adaptive nonlinear optical correlators and joint transform correlators with a nonlinearity in the correlator's Fourier plane are investigated with the purpose of optimization (in terms of the correlators' discrimination capability in target location in cluttered background) of nonlinearities' parameters and of judgment of the discrimination capability's sensitivity to such design factors as limitation of the nonlinearity's dynamic range and resolution power.
