A method for producing Fourier transform holograms in spatially coherent but temporally broadband light is presented. The technique employs a broadband Fourier transforming system incorporated into an achromatic grating interferometer. The theory has been experimentally verified by producing a Fourier transform hologram in temporally broadband light from a high pressure Hg arc lamp.
