An optical security system based on a correlation between two separate binary computer-generated holograms has been developed and experimentally tested. The two holograms are designed using two different iterative algorithms: the projection-onto constrained sets algorithm and the direct binary search (DBS) algorithm. By placing the ready-touse holograms on a modified joint transform correlator input plane, an output image is constructed as a result of a spatial correlation between the two functions coded by the holograms. Both simulation and experimental results are presented to demonstrate the system's performance. While we concentrate mainly on the DBS algorithm, we also compare the performance of both algorithms.
