Astigmatic phase retrieval: an experimental demonstration Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We present the first experimental demonstration of the astigmatic phase retrieval technique, in which the diffracted wavefield is distorted by cylindrical curvature in two orthogonal directions. A charge-one vortex, a charge-two vortex, and a simple test image are all correctly reconstructed.
