Phase retrieval from experimental (laboratory) data has been successfully demonstrated. A diffuse object was coherently illuminated and Fourier intensity data were collected by a charge-coupled device detector and a video digitizer. By using the data and an a priori triangular image support constraint, an iterative Fourier-transform algorithm was used to estimate the phase of the Fourier transform of the object. The reconstructed image compares favorably with a conventional image with the same spatial-frequency bandwidth.
