Electron Diffractive Imaging

Kazutoshi Gohara and Osamu Kamimura

Abstract: Diffractive imaging using a diffraction pattern and a computer recently attracts much attention in material science. The innovative microscopy using an electron beam shows the direction of imaging with atomic-scale super resolution for non-crystalline specimens. This short letter presents the principle, the state of the related fields, examples of experimental results, and future researches of the method.

Key words: Diffractive Imaging, Diffraction Microscope, Phase Problem, Iterative Phase Retrieval
