22 August 1988 Operation Of A Deformable Mirror Device As A Fourier Plane Phase Modulating Filter

The operation of a deformable mirror device (DMD) as a Fourier plane phase modulating filter is described. An analysis of the optical characteristics of the DMD elements as phase modulators is summarized. Analytical and experimental results indicating the existence of a quasi-phase-only operational mode are presented. These results are used to specify the mirror deflection required to implement a binary phase-only image correlation operation. An optical correlator system is implemented using the DMD Fourier plane filter and experimental results from this system are compared with computer simulations of the correlator operation.
