On the possibilities of x-ray phase contrast microimaging by coherent high-energy synchrotron radiation
Coherent properties of the x-ray beam delivered at the ESRF allow the observation of very weak perturbations of the wave front, resulting in the phase contrast. A straightforward experimental setupExpand
