Methods to Remove Distortion Artifacts in Scanned Projections



A R. Kalukin, Zachary H. Levine, Charles S. Tarrio, S P. Frigo, I McNulty, S S. Wang, C C. Retsch, M Kuhn, B Winn


Atrifacts induced by distortions which sometimes occur in two-dimensional projection images can appear in the resulting tomographic reconstructions. We describe a procedure for analyzing, correcting and removing experimental atrifacts, and hence reducing reconstruction atrifacts. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional images acquired with scanning transmissino x-ray microscopy of a sample containing an integrated circuit interconnect show how these procedurescan be successfully applied.
