Abstract

Some consequences of using partially coherent fields in the recently proposed method of power-extinction diffraction tomography are analyzed. It is found that the method is very tolerant of short spectral coherence lengths. The spectral coherence length of the field is shown to set the scale of a low-pass filter that acts on the subject. The implications of these results for implementation of the method are discussed.
