Abstract
In this article, we apply a novel method to polychromatic pattern recognition with a Mach-Zehnder nonzero order joint transform correlator. It is achieved by using the special arrangement of separated polychromatic components of objects and reference images and Lagrange multipliers technique to synthesize a reference function in the input spatial domain. The purpose is to sharpen the correlation peak and to reduce correlation sidelobes. Besides, we cleverly utilize the Stokes relations to remove the large zero order term directly in one step in this structure. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the improvements.
