Electron optical phase-shifts by Fourier methods: Analytical versus numerical calculations

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


The theoretical framework for the computation of electromagnetic fields and electron optical phase-shifts in Fourier space has been recently applied to objects with long-range fringing fields, such as reverse-biased p–n junctions and magnetic stripe domains near a specimen edge. In addition to new analytical results, in this work, we present a critical comparison between numerical and analytical computations. The influence of explicit and implicit boundary conditions on the phase shifts and phase-contrast images is also investigated in detail.
