This Letter demonstrates a two-dimensional imaging technique that uses a line scan camera to resolve one spatial dimension and temporal modulation to resolve the perpendicular dimension. A temporal intensity modulation, which increases linearly in frequency along one direction is applied to an illumination beam. The modulated light distribution is imaged onto an object then onto a line scan camera oriented perpendicularly to the direction of the modulation sweep. A line diffuser is placed shortly before the line scan camera and diffuses light along the direction of modulation so that each pixel collects all modulation frequencies.
