We propose a new detection method of a 2-dimensional pH image to measure the pH distribution of test materials by illuminating a frequency modulated light to LAPS using a chopping wheel. It could simultaneously measure signals in one line by applying a modulated light with a different frequency for each pixel, using a chopping wheel for modulating the frequency, and calculating an amplitude with respect to a frequency component by the light source. To test the proposed method, we implement a chopping wheel in consideration of a LAPS's characteristic, and reconstructed an image by frequency analysis using the implemented chopping wheel and 4 mm test pattern image. As a result, we verified that the proposed method using the chopping wheel was able to detect 30 times faster a 3030 pixels pH image having a PSNR more than 22 dB above the conventional method.
