Near-edge x-ray absorption resonances provide information on molecular orbital structure; these resonances can be exploited in x-ray spectromicroscopy to give sub-50-nanometer resolution images with chemical state sensitivity. At the same time, radiation damage sets a limit to the resolution that can be obtained in absorption mode. Phase contrast imaging may provide another means of chemical state imaging with lower radiation dose. We describe here the use of experimentally measured near-edge absorption data to estimate near-edge phase resonances. This is accomplished by splicing the near-edge data into reference data and carrying out a numerical integration of the Kramers-Kronig relation.
