Polycrystal orientation mapping techniques based on full-field acquisition schemes like X-ray Diffraction Contrast Tomography and certain other variants of 3D X-ray Diffraction or near-field High Energy Diffraction Microscopy enable time efficient mapping of 3D grain microstructures. The spatial resolution obtained with this class of monochromatic beam X-ray diffraction imaging approaches remains typically below the ultimate spatial resolution achievable with X-ray imaging detectors. Introducing a generalised reconstruction framework enabling the combination of acquisitions with different detector pixel size and sample tilt settings provide a pathway towards 3D orientation mapping with a spatial resolution approaching the one of state of the art X-ray imaging detector systems.
