Abstract

The inverse transform of the product of two Fourier transform holograms is analyzed and shown to contain the correlation of the two images from which the holograms were formed. The theory, analysis, and initial experimental demonstration of the feasibility of a novel correlation scheme using this multiplied Fourier transform hologram system are presented.
