Abstract

Full field x-ray propagation imaging can be severely deteriorated by wave front aberrations. Here we present an extension of ptychographic phase retrieval with simultaneous probe and object reconstruction suitable for the near-field diffractive imaging setting. Update equations used to iteratively solve the phase problem from a set of near-field images in view of reconstruction both object and probe are derived. The algorithm is tested based on numerical simulations including photon shot noise. The results indicate that the approach provides an efficient way to overcome restrictive idealizations of the illumination wave in the near-field (propagation) imaging.

Schematic of the phase retrieval algorithm. In the outer loop, a reference plane for the probe update is chosen. In the shown simulations we define the first plane to be this reference plane. In general any plane can be chosen. Three different error metrics are calculated (see Eqs. (11), (12) and (13)). The update plane j for the object is selected randomly. A Gerchberg-Saxton step using two empty beam measurements at two detector positions a and b is needed to predefine the probe. The complex valued field of the exit wave behind the object is calculated as the product of the object and the current, propagated probe. Next comes a modulus constraint according to the respective image recorded with the object in plane j, i.e. propagated intensities are set to the measured data, followed by back propagation. Object o and probe p are separated using to Eqs. (7) and (8).

Simulation setup: (a) Complex valued model chosen to represent the object. Left: amplitude, right: phase. (b) Complex valued field chosen for the probe in plane one. Left: amplitude, right: phase. (c) Simulation set-up: Six defocus measurements (only three intensity patterns and their corresponding Fresnel numbers F are shown for illustration) are recorded with the detector fixed at distance z from the first plane. (d) A first empty beam intensity pattern is recorded at the same detector position z as before, while for the second empty beam image, the detector is placed at position z/2 from the first plane. A parallel beam geometry and coordinate system is used.

(a) Phase retrieval for known probe. The factor β in Eq. (9) is set to zero. No Gerchberg-Saxton iteration is performed. (b) Reconstruction of the probe without the Gerchberg-Saxton step using full information of the object (the factor α in Eq. (10) is set to zero). (c) Simultaneous reconstruction of object and probe without a Gerchberg-Saxton step.

(a) Reconstruction of object and probe using two additional empty beam measurements treated by a Gerchberg-Saxton step. The algorithm was initialized with ones for o and p (zeros for the respective phases) and ran for 50 iterations, setting α = 0.3 and β = 0.2 in Eqs. (9) and (10). (b) Poisson noise was added to the simulated intensity recordings. After 50 iterations, object and probe are reconstructed. (c), (d) Convergence for the simulations of (a), (b) by the error metrics described in Eqs. (11), (12) and (13).
