Paper Abstract

Coherent Diffractive Imaging (CDI) is a method of lensless imaging that reconstructs a target object from recordings of the diffraction pattern it generates when illuminated by a coherent source. A new method of scanning CDI, 'Ptychography,' was introduced recently and has been successfully demonstrated as a method of lensless microscopy at optical and x-ray wavelengths. Here we show how it can be applied to visible light microscopy to produce high resolution quantitative phase images of low-contrast objects, such as unstained cells.
