Abstract
We present a study on the resolution limits and resolution factors of terahertz (THz) ptychography. Simulations of a binary amplitude object show that ptychography shares the same intrinsic resolution factors with digital holography, i.e. it is diffraction-limited. Reconstructions of amplitude and phase objects obtained from holographic and ptychographic experiments are comparable. A lateral resolution of around one wavelength λ is achieved on an amplitude object, while a depth resolution of around λ/5 is reported on a weakly diffracting phase object. THz ptychography is expected to complement THz holography for imaging biological samples and THz transparent specimens.
