Abstract :

The technique of the narrowband optical signal processing by means of the joint estimation of both the informative signalâ??s component and the speckle-noise level has appeared to become an efficient tool at solving the tasks in various fields of optics and photonics. The envelope of a signal being formed from the initially determined component under the inevitable Gaussian noise influence obeys to the Rice statistical distribution, first formulated by S. Rice in 1944 as an extension of the classical Rayleigh distribution. The Rice statistical model describes a wide range of the signal processing problems in the tasks when the output signal is composed as a sum of the sough-for initial signal and a random noise generated by many independent normally-distributed summands, what always takes place at the optical signal propagation in a medium. Recently a new concept of the so-called twoparameter analysis has been developed and mathematically substantiated providing an accurate joint estimation of both the signal and the noise values without any a-priory assumptions concerning the process. The methods of the Rician signalâ??s two-parameter analysis, based on the mathematical statisticsâ?? principles, form the theoretical foundation for a fundamentally new approach to solving a wide variety of scientific and applied tasks, including the investigation of an optical mediumâ??s properties, the implementation of the high precision phase measurements in optical metrology systems, etc. The two-parameter analysis techniques have been tested both numerically and in physical experiments. One of the important applications of such an approach is being realized in a recently elaborated method of measuring the mediumâ??s electro-optical (EO) coefficient, based on analyzing the statistical characteristics of the modulated reflected optical wave. The two-parameter analysis of the signalâ??s envelope has been shown to provide an efficient reconstruction of the useful, non-distorted signal component against the speckle noise background, thus ensuring the more correct evaluation of the EO coefficient than provided by the traditional linear regression technique, based upon measuring the total, noisecontaminated reflected signal. Besides, the application of the two-parameter technique significantly simplifies the experimental setup and decreases the required number of measurements. Another perspective application of the developed technique concerns the phase shift determination at quasiharmonic signalsâ?? interferometry in optical metrology.
