Abstract
A novel method is described for storing and retrieving the second-order correlation function of partially coherent fields. The key element of the method is an instantaneous hologram that records the superposition of a random field whose correlation function is to be determined and the mutually incoherent reference field, taken over a time interval that is much shorter than the coherence time of the random field. The method is somewhat similar to conventional holography, but differs from it in several important respects.
