We propose a novel snapshot phase shift fringe projection three-dimensional (3D) surface measurement method using polarization-coded light illumination and polarization camera. The light from the light source is split into two beams, one is left circularly polarized and the other is right circularly polarized, to illuminate the object simultaneously. A four-channel division of focal plane (DoFP) polarization camera is employed to capture the light reflected from the object surface. Four images with a phase shift of π/2 are extracted from the snapshot image and then analyzed to reconstruct a 3D object surface. The proposed method is the first snapshot phase shift fringe projection approach for 3D surface imaging. It is insensitive to motion and has the potential for ultrafast 3D surface imaging.
