Abstract

A new method for recording Fresnel transformations of two- and three-dimensional scenes illuminated by spatially incoherent light is described. The technique is based on the properties of the triangular interferometer and the afocal optical system. Experimental results with one- and two-point objects have verified the basic principles of the method.
