Using a classical source generating a field with an adjustable degree of spatial coherence, we propose and demonstrate a two-photon correlated Fourier imaging scheme in which both amplitude and phase information about the spatial frequencies of an object can be obtained. The effects of the incident field’s partial coherence are discussed in a geometrical optics approach.
