Title: Electron Ghost Imaging

Abstract

Here in this paper, we report a demonstration of electron ghost imaging. A digital micromirror device directly modulates the photocathode drive laser to control the transverse distribution of a relativistic electron beam incident on a sample. Correlating the structured illumination pattern to the total sample transmission then retrieves the target image, avoiding the need for a pixelated detector. In our example, we use a compressed sensing framework to improve the reconstruction quality and reduce the number of shots compared to raster scanning a small beam across the target. Finally, compressed electron ghost imaging can reduce both acquisition time and sample damage in experiments for which spatially resolved detectors are unavailable (e.g., spectroscopy) or in which the experimental architecture precludes full frame direct imaging.
