Paper Abstract

We review the technical advantages offered by x-ray holographic microscopy for imaging the structure of living biological specimens. We discuss the wavelength, coherence, energy, and pulse-length requirements and conclude that these could be met by free-electron laser architectures of the near future. We also show that Fourier-transform holography using a reference scattering sphere is the best optical configuration for a practical instrument.
