Diffraction tomography allows us to obtain high-resolution 3D phase and amplitude reconstructions of thick specimens. Here we report on some difficuties arising in the experimental realization of diffraction tomography. These initial experiments together with computer simulations are presented and first results obtained by incorporating the suggested modifications are shown for a collection of 1  $\mu$m diameter latex spheres and a 3  $\mu$m diameter gold dot.
