The technique of Fourier synthesis holography to image through scattering materials is analyzed in detail. A broad spectral source is decomposed into its Fourier components, and a hologram is formed at each wavelength and stored in the computer. Upon synthesis in the computer, a clear image can be formed of the obscured object. Post-data-acquisition processing such as selection of the gating time delay and autocorrelation shaping are also demonstrated.
