An unconventional x-ray fluorescence holography experiment was carried out by using an area detector in combination with an absorption filter. The high angular resolution and the very precise detection of intensities allowed the reconstruction of images of distant, as well as light, atoms. The simultaneous recording of the full hologram opens the possibility of one-shot imaging at atomic resolution. The hologram of a CoO single crystal was recorded on the imaging plate and the images of atoms located up to more than 7 Å far from the emitter were obtained. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
