Analyzer-free linear dichroic ptychography


Linear dichroism is an important tool to characterize the transmission matrix and determine the crystal or orbital orientation in a material. In order to achieve high-resolution mapping of transmission properties, the linear-dichroism scattering model in ptychographic imaging is introduced, and an efficient two-stage reconstruction algorithm is developed. Using the proposed algorithm on a uniaxial material, the dichroic transmission matrix can be recovered without an analyzer by using ptychography measurements with as few as three different polarization angles, with the help of an empty region to remove phase ambiguities.
