Abstract
The morphological joint fractional Fourier transform correlator (MJFTC), as a modified nonlinear joint fractional Fourier transform correlator (JFTC), is introduced in this paper. An optoelectronic setup that can implement such a nonlinear JFTC is advised and constructed. We investigate the correlation properties of the MJFTC using computer simulation and optical experiments. Numerical and experimental results show that the MJFTC exhibits remarkable improvement in terms of discriminability and peak sharpness compared with the classic JFTC. Moreover, the MJFTC provides better noise tolerance to the salt-and-pepper noise or normally distributed white additive noise than the JFTC and the other nonlinear processing or fractional-order filtering JFTC.
