A new Phase-Contrast Technique without a phase-changing plate (phase dielectric dot) on the Fourier plane of a 4f optical correlator is proposed. The advantages of this method are the easy scheme to recover the gray level information encoded on a phase-only mask and the high diffraction efficiency of the recovered image.
