We consider technical approaches to the problem of making 3-D images of large (<10 μm) life-science samples with about 10 nm resolution. We find no existing methods and discuss the possibility of using soft x-ray diffractive techniques especially holography. We propose a new form of Fourier transform x-ray holography using a reference object consisting of an array of small pinholes formed by etching nuclear tracks. This scheme promises high resolution and a simple way to determine both the phase and amplitude of the diffracted wavefield.
