This paper presents a novel technique allowing time-dependent displacement of an object to be studied by continuously digitizing the speckle images using a high speed image acquisition system. Instead of generating fringe patterns, the displacement versus time for any point of interest can be studied. Therefore, the technique is equivalent to “many” massless and noncontact displacement sensors, which is particularly useful for vibration measurement.
