This work describes a new optical inspection method, based on the investigation of the combined space-frequency representation of the scattered field. Samples of the sliding window spectrum are measured optically, and then are processed using modern signal processing techniques, like signal reconstruction from Gabor expansion coefficients using the Zak transform, and phase recovery from amplitude only data, using projection onto constraints set algorithm. Computer simulations and experimental results show that the new method is capable to describe accurately very shallow phase objects, even when their dimensions are smaller than the diffraction limit of the optical setup.
