A new imaging system for incoherent objects is constructed. In this system, the coherence function of the diffracted field is derived from the signals of three scanning intensity detectors by using computational manipulations. The concrete optical and electronic systems, the details of the signal processings for the derivation of the coherence function, and calculations for image reconstruction are shown. The reconstructed images of asymmetric objects show the usefulness of the system.
