We present a novel method not only for determining the angular separation of unknown two-point spectral sources but also for obtaining each of their spectral profiles from measurements of both their complex degree of spectral coherence and their spectra across an observation area in the space-frequency domain. The theoretical predictions are fully proved by an experimental demonstration with a pair of uncorrelated two-point spectral sources.
