Abstract
Image segmentation by texture is achieved by using Gaussian smoothed fan (GSF) filters in the Fourier domain. These filters have intrinsically more defined bandwidths than Gabor filters and were developed earlier by the authors for multichannel filtering on digitized images. This paper reports a Fourier optical implementation of GSF filters on images constructed from Brodatz album textures. The back-transformed images are compared with corresponding output images obtained from digital processing and demonstrate that the approach is well suited to real-time fast segmentation of images containing texture fields.
