A recently proposed phase coding method for absolute phase retrieval performs well because its codeword is embedded into phase domain rather than intensity. Then, the codeword can determine the fringe order for the phase unwrapping. However, for absolute phase retrieval with a large number of codewords, the traditional phase coding method becomes not so reliable. In this paper, we present a novel phase coding method to tackle this problem. Six additional fringe images can generate more than unique codewords for correct absolute phase retrieval. The novel phase coding method can be used for absolute phase retrieval with high frequency. Experiment results demonstrate the proposed method is effective.
