Abstract

Demonstrated is the use of a photorefractive (PR) polymer with very high diffraction efficiency in a matched-filter optical correlator. The device is capable of comparing 5000-pixel test images with a reference image, with a rate limited by only the configuration time of the spatial light modulators (SLMs) and the response time of the detection system. The low cost and the good processability of the PR polymers make them especially attractive for applications.
