A new method of obtaining images of microobjects by processing digital interferograms, recorded using a modified Fourier spectrometer, is proposed. The process by which interferograms, which image the spatial characteristics of a microobject, are formed, is described. The requirements imposed on the width of the source radiation spectrum in order to transmit the spatial structure of the object are discussed. Results of an experiment to record the image of a microobject in white light are presented.
