Abstract

Efforts of phase and amplitude retrieval from diffraction patterns have almost exclusively been applied for nonperiodic objects. We investigated the quality of retrieval of nonperiodic objects embedded in a sinusoidal background, using the approach of iterative hybrid input–output with oversampling. Two strategies were employed; one by filtering in the frequency domain prior to phase retrieval, and the other by filtering the phase or amplitude image after retrieval. Results obtained indicate better outcomes with the latter approach provided detector noise is not excessive.
