Digital speckle photography is a useful tool for measuring the motion of optically rough surfaces from the speckle shift that takes place at the recording plane. A simple correlation based digital speckle photographic system has been proposed that implements two simultaneous optical extended fractional Fourier transforms (EFRTs) of different orders using only a single lens and detector to simultaneously detect both the magnitude and direction of translation and tilt by capturing only two frames: one before and another after the object motion. The dynamic range and sensitivity of the measurement can be varied readily by altering the position of the mirror/s used in the optical setup. Theoretical analysis and experiment results are presented.
