What is that "1/(4*(Pi*1*t)" that you have up there? Is this supposed to be 
"1/(4*(Pi*I*t)" ? i.e. is it supposed to be "I" not a "1" ?

Why else would you multiply by "1" in there?

In Mathematica, sqrt(-1) is called "I". But if it is one, then this is the 
FourierTransform you do get.

In[27]:= g = (1/(4*(Pi*1*t)^(3/2)))*Exp[(-1*3)/(4*1*t)];
h = Assuming[Element[f, Reals],Integrate[g*Exp[(-I)*2*Pi*f*t],{t, -Infinity, 

Out[28]= Cosh[(1 + I)*Sqrt[f]*Sqrt[3*Pi]]/(2*Sqrt[3]*Pi)
