Video Description

Coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) comprises a set of imaging techniques that replace image-forming optics by any of a wide array of computer algorithms that retrieve an image from the scatter pattern generated by a coherent illumination beam. CDI is particularly attractive for imaging with short-wavelength light, since it enables diffraction-limited imaging with quantitative phase- and amplitude-contrast. This talk will begin with a brief overview of applications of coherent diffractive imaging, and will then focus on ptychography and a few extensions tailored to various cutting-edge applications. Finally, it will provide a brief introduction to practical aspects of implementing coherent diffractive imaging.
