We introduce the coincidence fractional Fourier transform (FRT) implemented with incoherent and partially coherent light radiation. Optical systems for implementing the coincidence FRT are designed. The results show that the visibility and quality of the coincidence FRT of an object are closely related to the light source's transverse size, coherence, and spectral width. As an example, we numerically study the coincidence FRT of a single slit.
