Bragg coherent diffraction imaging (BCDI) is a powerful X-ray imaging technique for crystalline materials, providing high resolution maps of structure and strain. The technique is typically used to study a small isolated object, and is in general not compatible with a bulk polycrystalline sample, due to overlap of diffraction signals from various crystalline elements. In this paper, we present an imaging method for bulk samples, based on the use of a coherent source. The diffracted X-ray beam from a grain or domain of choice is magnified by an objective before being monitored by a 2D detector in the far field. The reconstruction principle is similar to the case of BCDI, while taking the magnification and pupil function into account. The concept is demonstrated using numerical simulations and reconstructions. We find that by using an object-lens distance shorter than the focal length, the numerical aperture is larger than in a traditional imaging geometry. and at the same time the setup is insensitive to small phase errors by lens imperfections. According to our simulations, we expect to be able to achieve a spatial resolution smaller than 20 nm when using the objective lens in this configuration.
