Constrained X-ray tensor tomography reconstruction
Optics Express 23(12):15134-15151, 2015 (bib)

Quite recently, a method has been presented to reconstruct X-ray scattering tensors from projections obtained in a grating interferometry setup. The original publications present a rather specialised approach, for instance by suggesting a single SART-based solver. In this work, we propose a novel approach to solving the inverse problem, allowing the use of other algorithms than SART (like conjugate gradient), a faster tensor recovery, and an intuitive visualisation. Furthermore, we introduce constraint enforcement for X-ray tensor tomography (cXTT) and demonstrate that this yields visually smoother results in comparison to the state-of-art approach, similar to regularisation.
