Fund Project: This work was supported by US Army Research Laboratory and US Army Research Office grant W911NF-15-1-0233 as well as by the Office of Naval Research grant N00014-15-1-2330

An inverse scattering problem for the 3-D Helmholtz equation is considered. Only the modulus of the complex valued scattered wave field is assumed to be measured and the phase is not measured. This problem naturally arises in the lensless quality control of fabricated nanostructures. Uniqueness theorem is proved.
