A high-resolution phase-retrieval method for an imaging system with scanning illumination that is capable of reconstructing the modulus and phase of an object without a holographic reference wave is proposed. Reconstruction involves the synthesis of the reconstructed objects from the data of zero- and higher-frequency components of two Fourier intensity measurements: the Fourier intensity of the product of the object and a probe beam that is scanned across the object and the Fourier intensity of the product of the object and a probe beam that is modulated with an exponential filter. This method improves on the resolution of a reconstructed object by previous methods that make use of the data of only the zero-frequency components of the two Fourier intensities. In addition, phase retrieval in the scanning-illumination system with a probe of unknown modulus can be treated by use of the synthetic procedure, provided the phase of the probe function is a constant or a known distribution. Computer-simulated examples of the reconstruction of one- and two-dimensional complex objects demonstrate that reconstruction is robust.
