Abstract

Single-shot digital holographic microscopy with an adjustable field of view and magnification was demonstrated by using a tabletop 32.8 nm soft-x-ray laser. The holographic images were reconstructed with a two-dimensional fast-Fourier-transform algorithm, and a new configuration of imaging was developed to overcome the pixel-size limit of the recording device without reducing the effective NA. The image of an atomic-force-microscope cantilever was reconstructed with a lateral resolution of 480 nm , and the phase contrast image of a 20 nm carbon mesh foil demonstrated that profiles of sample thickness can be reconstructed with few-nanometers uncertainty. The ultrashort x-ray pulse duration combined with single-shot capability offers great advantage for flash imaging of delicate samples.
