Title: Waveguide-Based Off-Axis Holography with Hard X Rays

Abstract

We present an off-axis holography experiment based on the coherent cone beams emitted from a pair of x-ray waveguides. A magnified off-axis hologram is recorded, from which the phase of the optical transmission function of a sample is obtained by digital holographic reconstruction. A spatial resolution of about 100 nm has been achieved at 10.4 keV photon energy. Spatial resolution is determined by the cross-sectional dimensions of the waveguide and could approach a fundamental limit of about 10 nm in future experiments. In addition, we propose a new experimental setup that might overcome this limitation.
