Title: Artifact mitigation of ptychography integrated with on-the-fly scanning probe microscopy

Abstract

In this paper, we report our experiences with conducting ptychography simultaneously with the X-ray fluorescence measurement using the on-the-fly mode for efficient multi-modality imaging. We demonstrate that the periodic artifact inherent to the raster scan pattern can be mitigated using a sufficiently fine scan step size to provide an overlap ratio of >70%. This allows us to obtain transmitted phase contrast images with enhanced spatial resolution from ptychography while maintaining the fluorescence imaging with continuous-motion scans on pixelated grids. Lastly, this capability will greatly improve the competence and throughput of scanning probe X-ray microscopy.
