Abstract
The use of laser diode in joint transform correlator (JTC) is discussed as an example of potential applications to optical signal processing. Effects of the coherence and astigmatism of laser diode beam are analyzed. Two methods for correcting laser diode beam using a cylindrical lens or a pair of cylindrical lenses are also reviewed. A corrected laser diode can be used in JTC to totally eliminate the effect of astigmatism.
