Differential phase contrast can be realised in the scanning transmission X-ray microscope by use of a detector with an appropriate configuration of detector elements. Use of such a configured detector significantly improves the ability to image specimens with low absorption contrast. A natural application is found in scanning fluorescence X-ray microprobe studies of biological specimens. We discuss the technique and several applications.
