Abstract

POC IS PROPOSING TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE A COMPLETELY OPTICAL SYSTEM FOR REAL-TIME NONLINEAR TRANSFORMATION. THE MAIN FEATURE OF THE SYSTEM IS THAT IT EMPLOYS HALFTONED IMAGES. THIS ALLOWS THE PROCESSOR TO BE TUNABLE FOR DIFFERENT NONLINEAR TRANSFORMS. A PRECOMPENSATION ALGORITHM PROVIDES THE UTILIZATION OF A REAL-TIME RECORDING DEVICE WITH AN ARBITRARY TRANSFER FUNCTION, AND A VARIABLE DIAPHRAGM ALLOWS A SIMPLE RECTANGULAR GRATING TO BE USED INSTEAD OF A SPECIALLY PREPARED HALFTONE SCREEN. THESE CHARACTERISTICS MAKE THE DEVICE USEFUL IN VERY HIGH SPEED INFORMATION SYSTEMS.
