Gabor holography is well positioned to exploit flash x-ray sources as well as ultra-bright third generation synchrotron sources as a sub-50 nm resolution imaging technique for biological samples. Gabor holography requires no optics and no sample prefocusing. Sample alignment is eased since the area of illumination can be quite large. Gabor holography can be used to image large fields with multimode sources with the resulting numerical aperture, and hence resolution, being limited by the size of a single mode. In addition, the resolution has been limited by shortcomings in the reconstruction methods. The primary emphasis in the present study is on biological imaging.
