A digital in-line holography (DIH) approach for the instantaneous measurement of the three-dimensional positions of micrometer sized particles in a radio frequency gas discharge is presented. The applicability of this method to a strongly coupled dusty plasma is demonstrated. The performance of DIH is benchmarked and special attention is paid to its spatial and temporal resolution.
