Optical preprocessing using liquid crystal televisions

Not Accessible

Abstract

The suitability of a low-cost liquid crystal TV to function as a spatial light modulator in an optical preprocessor for an electronic pattern recognition system is investigated. The application presented is optical edge enhancement. The liquid crystal TV performs reasonably well where high-quality images are not required. Three optical edge enhancement methods are presented: spatial filtering; image cancellation; and phase cancellation. The phase cancellation method was discovered during the course of this research.
