Paper Abstract

The conventional X-ray pinhole camera is limited to about 3 μm resolution at 10 keV due to manufacturing limitations. A new imaging technique, which is based on recovering information about the source from penumbral shadows, is expected to resolve to the diffraction limit. Examples of the reconstruction of simulated source intensities by different methods are presented. Geometrical considerations of a practical system are discussed.
