Abstract : Theoretical and experimental research is being conducted in the field of opto-electronic systems. The goal is to contribute solutions to problems of basic research importance which also have an underlying significance in practical applications that involve automatic pattern recognition and remote sensing. White light processing systems are described both for matched filtering and for diffraction pattern sampling. Also excellent progress is reported on our related studies of broadband holographic optical elements and an off-axis Fourier transform achromat. With coherent illumination we report a means for automatic image quality evaluation. The scattering of light by dielectric and conducting cylinders has been studied theoretically and experimentally with an emphasis on remote optical metrology. (Author)
