Title: Anisotropic nano-scale resolution in 3D Bragg coherent diffraction imaging

Abstract

We demonstrate that the resolution of three-dimensional (3D) real-space images obtained from Bragg coherent x-ray diffraction measurements is direction dependent. We propose and demonstrate the effectiveness of a metric to determine the spatial resolution of images that accounts for the directional dependence. The measured direction dependent resolution of ~4-9 nm is higher than the best previously obtained 3D measurements. Lastly, we quantify the relationship between the resolution of recovered real-space images and dosage and discuss its implications in the light of next generation synchrotrons.
