An experimental study of the use of an S-transform to evaluate the phase distribution from a two-dimensional fringe pattern by introducing the carrier frequencies in two spatial directions, x and y, is presented. The phase distribution is extracted from the optical fringe pattern by using an S-transform gradient and S-transform phase methods. The experimental result for the Fourier transform profilometry algorithm is compared with the results of the S-transform analysis.
