Space-variant optical processing with acousto-optic modulators
Chapter 2 presents the theoretical background of the two major parts of the experiment: space-variant processing and acousto-optic modulators. These two areas form the basis for understanding the experiment. Chapter 3 describes the proof-of-principle experiment that was designed. The equipment used is identified and the development of the computer control is presented. The results are given and a comparison is made between the calculated and the measured results. Chapter 4 goes into the capabilities of the experiment. The physical limitations of the equipment is discussed and some indication of the potential for this design is given. Chapter 5 sums up the experiment and discusses possible areas for future research.
