We have developed what we believe is a new technique for obtaining a whole-field image representing the deforming amounts of a diffuse object. The object is supposedly continuously deforming and does not stop deforming during the measurement. This technique uses arccosine operations to extract the absolute, not signed, value of the phase. We assume that a right-phase change retains almost the same value in a small local area. This retention determines the sign of the phase and consequently the value of the phase change. The deformation phase during any term of the deforming process is shown as a map through the temporal-phase unwrapping of the calculated phase.
