Abstract

Tomographic coherent imaging requires the reconstruction of a series of two-dimensional projections of the object. We show that using the solution for the image of one projection as the starting point for the reconstruction of the next projection offers a reliable and rapid approach to the image reconstruction. The method is demonstrated on simulated and experimental data. This technique also simplifies reconstructions using data with curved incident wavefronts.
