We present an all-numeric multiplexing/demultiplexing technique for digitally recorded holograms that allow the simultaneous determination of the in-plane and the out-of-plane components of the displacement vector of an object submitted to some loading. The twin-sensitivity measurement is obtained from two different illumination directions that give two sensitivity vectors. The spatial multiplexing is achieved by an incoherent mixing of two duplets of coherent waves that produce holograms carried with orthogonal polarized reference waves. The spatial demultiplexing uses the autocorrelation function of the multiplexed holograms as a position estimator. The estimator then enables the determination of the pixel-to-pixel correspondence between the holograms for the double component determination. Results of the experiment are presented.
