## Abstract

Geometrical considerations are used to obtain quantitative data for the components of the displacement vector. Use is made of a dual-beam illumination and a variant is described, using point light sources and a single point of observation. Contour lines for the displacement vector in the viewing direction and in a perpendicular direction are obtained as the algebraic sum and difference of two interference patterns. Densification of the initial pattern is used to obtain moiré patterns for the out-of-plane and in-plane displacements of flat Surfaces and for the derivatives of these displacements. To determine the complete displacement field of objects of arbitrary shape, one holographic plate is sufficient, using two times two-point light sources.
