Distributed Reconstruction Algorithm for Electron Tomography with Multiple-scattering Samples

  title={Distributed Reconstruction Algorithm for Electron Tomography with Multiple-scattering Samples},
  author={David Ren and Michael Whittaker and Colin Ophus and Laura Waller},
Three-dimensional electron tomography is used to understand the structure and properties of samples in chemistry, materials science, geoscience, and biology. With the recent development of high-resolution detectors and algorithms that can account for multiple-scattering events, thicker samples can be examined at finer resolution, resulting in larger reconstruction volumes than previously possible. In this work, we propose a distributed computing framework that reconstructs large volumes by…

RESIRE: real space iterative reconstruction engine for Tomography
This paper proposes a hybrid gradient descent to solve the tomography problem by combining Fourier slice theorem and calculus of variations and shows that the state-of-art RESIRE can produce more superior results than previous methods; the reconstructed objects have higher quality and smaller relative errors.

This work presents the mathematical implementation of a tomographic algorithm, termed GENeralized Fourier Iterative REconstruction (GENFIRE), for high-resolution 3D reconstruction from a limited number of 2D projections and demonstrates that it can produce superior results relative to several other popular tomographic reconstruction techniques.
Multi-layer Born multiple-scattering model for 3D phase microscopy
We propose an accurate and computationally efficient 3D scattering model, multi-layer Born (MLB), and use it to recover the 3D refractive index (RI) of thick biological samples. For inverse problems

Petascale XCT: 3D Image Reconstruction with Hierarchical Communications on Multi-GPU Nodes
The design involves three novel optimizations: optimization of (back)projection operators by extending the 2D memory-centric approach to 3D to perform hierarchical communications by exploiting "fat-node" architecture with many GPUs and utilization of mixed-precision types while preserving convergence rate and quality.
Adaptive Regularization for Three-Dimensional Optical Diffraction Tomography
This work first learns a dictionary from the lateral planes of an initial reconstruction that is obtained with a total-variation regularization, then uses this dictionary to enhance both the lateral and axial planes within a final reconstruction step.
