A digital holographic interferometry setup used to measure radial vibrations along a rotating shaft is presented. A continuous Nd:YAG laser and a high-speed digital camera are used for recording the holograms. The shaft was polished optically smooth to avoid speckle noise from the rotating surface. The light reflected from the shaft was directed onto a diffuser which in turn was imaged by the holographic system. Simultaneous measurements with a laser vibrometer were performed at one point and comparisons between the signals showed good agreement. It is shown that different vibration components of a rotating shaft can be simultaneously measured with this technique.
