Lensfree holography provides a new way to effectively bypass the intrinsical trade-off between the spatial resolution and field-of-view (FOV) of conventional lens-based microscopes. Unfortunately, due to the limited sensor pixel-size, unpredictable disturbance during image acquisition, and sub-optimum solution to the phase retrieval problem, typical lensfree microscopes only produce compromised imaging quality in terms of lateral resolution and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). In this paper, we propose an adaptive pixel-super-resolved lensfree imaging (APLI) method to address the pixel aliasing problem by Z-scanning only, without resorting to subpixel shifting or beam-angle manipulation. Furthermore, an automatic positional error correction algorithm and adaptive relaxation strategy are introduced to enhance the robustness and SNR of reconstruction significantly. Based on APLI, we perform full-FOV reconstruction of a USAF resolution target across a wide imaging area of ~29.85 mm2 and achieve half-pitch lateral resolution of 770 nm, surpassing 2.17 times of the theoretical Nyquist-Shannon sampling resolution limit imposed by the sensor pixel-size (1.67 μm). Full-FOV imaging result of a typical dicot root is also provided to demonstrate its promising potential applications in biologic imaging.
