Introduction and Fundamental Theory

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter covers the underlying theory and introduces concepts for imaging using extreme ultraviolet radiation. The concept of high harmonic generation is briefly introduced. This is followed by general aspects, geometric considerations, and numerical reconstruction procedures for diffraction-based imaging and digital in-line holography. The chapter is concluded by a summary and an overview of the state-of-the-art techniques in the field of lensless imaging.
