Abstract: We demonstrate hyperspectral imaging using two time-delayed, coherent extreme ultraviolet (XUV) sources. The approach combines broadband XUV high-harmonic generation, holographic imaging, and Fourier transform spectroscopy. The two harmonics sources are spatially separated at generation,and overlap in the far field resulting in a double slit diffraction pattern. We record the two-dimensional intensity modulation as a function of relative time delay; the Fourier transform determines the spatially dependent spectrum. To reduce the delay jitter and improve the spectral resolution, we demonstrate a novel experimental setup that records the relative delay of the two pulses through optical interference. Moreover, we have demonstrated that this broadband approach can be extended to Fourier transform holographic imaging, which avoids extensive phase retrieval computations. Applications include imaging of biological materials near the carbon K-edge.
