Paper Abstract

Synchrotron X-ray imaging is constantly achieving higher spatial resolution. In the field of grating-based phase- contrast imaging, these developments allow to directly resolve the interference patterns created by a phase grating without need for a analyzer grating. In this study we analyzed the performance of a single-grating interferometer and compared it to a conventional double-grating interferometer. Based on simulations and measurements of a test phantom we evaluated the sensitivity, resolution and signal to noise ratios of different setup configurations.
