A new kind of amplitude-encoded phase-only filter (AE POF) is presented. The interference of the Fourier phase value with a tilted plane reference wave encodes the pure Fourier phase information of the object wave and results in an off-axis phase-only filter (OA POF). After the binarization step the filter function is recorded directly into the recording medium in final size using a laser scanner. Comparing them with the conventional matched filter, the conventional phase-only filter, and the AE
POF, as well as their binary versions, we discuss the performances of OA POFs (OA BPOFs), present computer simulations, and demonstrate experimental results.
