Title: Attoclock Ptychography

Abstract

Dedicated simulations show that the application of time-domain ptychography to angular photo-electron streaking data allows shot-to-shot reconstruction of individual X-ray free electron laser pulses. Specifically, in this study, we use an extended ptychographic iterative engine to retrieve both the unknown X-ray pulse and the unknown streak field. Here, we evaluate the quality of reconstruction versus spectral resolution, signal-to-noise and sampling size of the spectrogram.
