Phase retrieval down to the atomic level has recently significantly improved due to advances in novel instrumentation, quantum measurement protocols and computational algorithms. It has led to new frontiers in electron microscopy such as 4D- or MIDI-STEM, inline and off-axis holography, ptychography, differential phase contrast, etc. This session discusses the latest progress in theory, algorithms, and instrumentation developments in phase contrast microscopy with electron matter waves. It also focuses on quantitative and functional imaging of e.g. polarity, strain or electric and magnetic fields for quantum materials and biological structures.
