In standard holographic applications, an object and a reference beam are simultaneously made incident on a recording material. Interference between these beams results in the storage of the spatial Fourier transform of the object pulse in the material. It is shown here that if the storage material is frequency selective (as in the case of inhomogeneously broadened absorbers), not only the spatial but also the temporal structure of the object pulse can be stored in and reconstructed from the material.
