Paper Abstract

Retrieval of the phase of a complex analytic function when only the amplitude is known has application to many real-world problems. For example, phase retrieval has been used in astronomical speckle imaging [1] and is being considered for laser speckle imaging systems.[2,3] In the latter case, the computational requirements may limit the number of images which can be obtained in a given time. This paper describes a modification to the iterative Fourier transform algorithm (IFTA) as described by Fienup [4] which may reduce the computation to reconstruct an image to a given quality by as much as a factor of three.
