Paper Abstract

Recently an algebraic reconstruction method, 2D-ART, has been presented for generation of three-dimensional maps of the grain boundaries within polycrystals. The grains are mapped layer-by-layer in a non-destructive way by diffraction with hard x-rays. Here we optimize the algorithm by means of simulations and discuss ways to automate the analysis. The use of generalized Kaiser-Bessel functions as basis functions is shown to be superior to a conventional discretization in terms of square pixels. The algorithm is reformulated as a block-iterative method in order to incorporate the instrumental point-spread-function and, at the same time, to avoid the need to store the set of equations. The first reconstruction of a full layer from experimental data is demonstrated.
