5 December 2001 Wavelet signal processing applied to optical phase conjugation
Author Affiliations +
Wavelet signal processing has demonstrated remarkable capabilities in reducing noise, achieving better resolution through edge detection and increasing data transmission by means of data compression. While wavelets are digital, another field, Optical Phase Conjugation (OPC), is analog and has been applied to similar problems: signal and image distortion reduction and optical data storage. Wavelets have been applied to optical solitons, laser beam diagnostics, diode laser arrays, interferometry and optical correlators. Wavelet signal processing will be applied to Optical Phase Conjugation to examine laser beam interaction in nonlinear crystals and remove distortion from input and output laser beams.
