Coupled ptychography and tomography algorithm improves reconstruction of experimental data
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Three-dimensional (3D) x-ray microscopy by ptychographic tomography requires elaborate numerical reconstructions. We describe a coupled ptychography-tomography reconstruction algorithm and apply it to an experimental ptychographic x-ray computed tomography data set of a catalyst particle. Compared to the traditional sequential algorithm, in which ptychographic projections are reconstructed to serve as input for subsequent tomographic reconstruction, the coupled ptychography-tomography algorithm reconstructs the 3D volume with higher spatial resolution over a larger field of view. Coupling the data from different projections improves the overall reconstruction, and the ptychographic sampling in individual projections can be coarsened beyond the point of overlap between neighboring scan points, still leading to stable reconstructions.
