In this Letter, we present referenceless phase retrieval methods with resolution enhancement. Structured illuminations with different orientations and phase shifts are generated by a spatial light modulator and are used to illuminate the specimen. The generated diffraction patterns are recorded by a CCD camera, and the phase of the wavefront is reconstructed from these patterns.
