Abstract
Volume holographic correlator (VHC) calculates the inner product between two data pages through parallel optical correlation. It has great potential in the field of information processing and real-time identification because of its high storage density, integration of storing and computing, and multi-channel parallel processing ability. Current studies on the improvements of VHC mainly focus on the processing speed and channel uniformity. However, the accuracy of the VHC is mainly related to the minimum output intensity varying with the spatial light modulator (SLM) pixel intensity, which is the sensitivity of the VHC. In this work, the Minimum Pixel Block Size (MPBS) is proposed to characterize the sensitivity of the VHC. The Effective Number of Pixels (ENP) is employed to evaluate the optical computing ability, which is more accurate compared with traditional calculating method based on the pixel number of the SLM. The theoretical and experimental results are instructive in the system design. Desired system performance can be achieved by optimizing the system parameters.
