In-line phase contrast is combined with laminography to image in three dimensions regions of interest in laterally extended flat specimens of weak absorption contrast. The principle of the method and a theoretical description of the imaging process are outlined. The present instrumental implementation enables reconstructing nondestructively the internal structure at different lateral specimen positions with micron resolution. The feasibility and application potential are demonstrated for both phase-contrast and holographic (i.e., using phase retrieval) laminography by the three-dimensional imaging of fuel-cell diffusion layers.

    A field theory is developed for diffusion with high density, partially absorbing random traps. Instanton techniques are used to derive the short-time properties of S(t), the average fraction of surviving particles. In three dimensions it is shown that S(t)∼t-3/2e-ρu0t[1+O(t1/2)], where...

    The possibility of minimizing the diffraction efficiency of a volume phase holographic grating while recording in a medium with diffusion self-amplification is considered. The recording process is modeled to demonstrate that the diffraction efficiency can be varied from 0.02 to 0.003 (50-250...
