It is shown, theoretically and experimentally, that a rotating object can be two-dimensionally imaged by illuminating the object with a sinusoidal interference pattern and then using the temporal modulation of the scattered light as the signal for building up a synthetic aperture. The image is formed in the Fourier-transform plane of the synthetic aperture.
