Coherent x-ray diffraction experiments were performed in Fresnel regime, within a line-projection geometry. A planar x-ray waveguide was used to focus coherent cylindrical waves onto a 7.2 m Kevlar fiber, which acts as a phase object for hard x rays. The phase was retrieved, by using a Fourier-based iterative phasing algorithm, consistent with measured diffraction data and known constraints in real space, with a submicrometer spatial resolution.
