ABSTRACT In this work we formulate the main properties of the gyrator operation which produces a rotation in the twisting (position-spatial frequency) phase planes. This transform can be easily performed in paraxial optics that underlines its possible application for image processing, holography, beam characterization, mode conversion and quantum information. As an example, it is demonstrated the application of gyrator transform for the generation of a variety of stable modes. (c) 2007 Optical Society of America.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract In this paper we review a number of optical image encryption techniques proposed in the literature inspired by the architecture of the classic optical Double Random Phase Encoding (DRPE) system. The optical DRPE method and its numerical simulation algorithm are first investigated in relation to the sampling considerations at various stages of the system according to the spreading of the input signal in both the space and spatial frequency domains. Then the several well-known optically inspired encryption techniques are examined and categorized into all optical techniques and image scrambling techniques. Each method is numerically implemented and compared with the optical DRPE scheme, in which random phase diffusers (masks) are applied after different transformations. The optical system used for each method is first illustrated and the corresponding unitary numerical algorithm implementation is then investigated in order to retain the properties of the optical counterpart. The simulation results for the sensitivities of the various encryption keys are presented and the robustness of each method is examined. This overview allows the numerical simulations of the corresponding optical encryption systems, and the extra degree of freedom (keys) provided by different techniques that enhance the optical encryption security, to be generally appreciated and briefly compared and contrasted.

    ABSTRACT: An image encryption is discussed based on the random phase encoding method in gyrator domains. An iterative structure of image encryption is designed for introducing more random phases to encrypt image. These random phase functions are generated by a two-dimensional chaotic mapping with the help of computer. The random phases are utilized for increasing the security of this encryption algorithm. In the chaotic mapping relation, the initial value and expression can serve as the key of algorithm. The mapping relation is considered secretly for storage and transmission in practical application in comparison to traditional algorithms. The angle parameter of gyrator transform is an additional key. Some numerical simulations have been given to validate the performance of the encryption scheme.
