"Three Lectures on X-Ray Phase Contrast Imaging: 

Fundamentals, and Some Frontiers"

David Paganin* and Daniele Pelliccia#

* School of Physics and Astronomy, Monash University, Australia
# School of Science, RMIT University, Australia

The first of these three two-hour lectures will cover some of the basics of imaging with coherent X-rays, culminating in discussions on phase contrast and the transport-of-intensity equation. The second lecture considers the inverse problem of phase retrieval, applied to both two-dimensional and three-dimensional phase-contrast imaging utilising coherent X-rays. The final lecture considers the role of partial coherence, as well as some recent topics such as ghost imaging and compressive sensing. All of these lectures will be accessible to those with a basic background in optics (e.g. wave equation, Maxwell equations, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, and the basics of Fourier and vector analysis) and interactions of x-rays with matter (e.g. attenuation mechanisms and complex refractive index).
