Thank you for the detailed answer, I think the comment about the positron really hit the nail on the head.

comment Resolution Limit for Energy Transition Imaging
@DumpsterDoofus Thank you for your comment. I'm still confused on the point of why the electron density is important. Unlike transmission imaging techniques, my understanding is that in florescence, ideally we only want to see the fluorophore protein and thus the specimen can only mess up our measurement. Thats why i'm not sure what to do with the notion of a living cell's electron density. For example, without optics I can't see better then the Ewald sphere because the most a photon can be scattered is 180 degrees.

comment Should a 1D Guassian wave oscillate?
@Kitchi, I am confident there are no errors in the code. I want to know if a pulse like solution should have oscillations as it travels. If I didn't make this clear please rephrase my question.
