To have the advantages of both spatial and temporal heterodyne techniques and to make efficient use of the limited spatiotemporal frequency bandwidth of image detection systems, we propose a technique of spatiotemporal heterodyne interferometry using both spatial and temporal carrier frequencies. By means of spatiotemporal frequency multiplexing, the technique permits the simultaneous recording of multiple-phase objects on a single space–time interferogram.
