Phase retrieval algorithms are now an important component of many modern computational imaging systems. A recently proposed scheme called generalized expectation consistent signal recovery (GEC-SR) shows better accuracy, speed, and robustness than numerous existing methods. Decentralized GEC-SR (deGEC-SR) addresses the scalability issue in high-resolution images. However, the convergence speed and stability of these algorithms heavily rely on the settings of several handcrafted tuning factors with inefficient turning process. In this work, we propose deGEC-SR-Net by unfolding the iterative deGEC-SR algorithm into a learning network architecture with trainable parameters. The parameters of deGEC-SR-Net are determined by data-driven training. Numerical results show that deGEC-SR-Net provides substantially faster convergence than deGEC-SR and exhibits superior robustness to noise and prior mis-specifications.
