Use of a complex constraint in coherent diffractive imaging Academic Article uri icon


  • We demonstrate use of a complex constraint based on the interaction of x-rays with matter for reconstructing images from coherent X-ray diffraction. We show the complementary information provided by the phase and magnitude of the reconstructed wavefield greatly improves the quality of the resulting estimate of the transmission function of an object without the need for a priori information about the object composition.
