Atomic resolution X-ray holography can be realized by using the atoms of the sample as inside sources or inside detectors. However, until now there were only very few experiments in which the atoms played the role of inside sources. The reason is twofold: (i) technically, inside-detector experiments are much easier and faster; (ii) by using atoms as inside detectors one can measure holograms at many energies on the same sample, which helps the reconstruction. This paper shows that, using new technical developments, inside-source holograms can be taken much faster than inside-detector holograms and, by applying a sophisticated evaluation method, high-quality reconstruction from a single-energy hologram can also be obtained.
