Abstract

We analyze the performance of the Fourier plane nonlinear filters in terms of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). We obtain a range of nonlinearities for which SNR is robust to the variations in input-noise bandwidth. This is shown both by analytical estimates of the SNR for nonlinear filters and by experimental simulations. Specifically, we analyze the SNR when Fourier plane nonlinearity is applied to the input signal. Using the Karhunen–Loève series expansion of the noise process, we obtain precise analytic expressions of the SNR for Fourier plane nonlinear filters in the presence of various types of additive-noise processes. We find a range of nonlinearities that need to be applied that keep the output SNR of the filter stable relative to changes in the noise bandwidth.
