Lensless imaging using coherent electrons


The methods of coherent diffractive imaging and ptychography replace a lens with an algorithm to obtain quantitative phase-sensitive images, and may provide advantages over conventional electron microscopy of macromolecules. This project will develop simulations of coherent electron diffraction under realistic conditions and compare with experiments, and investigate new algorithms to recover images from the diffraction data. We are looking for a candidate with a strong interest in imaging and Fourier optics, and who is capable of programming and performing data visualisation.
