Numerical Investigation of an Energetic Constraint for Inverse Scattering Problems
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 104, 49-67, 2010
Abstract
Microwave inverse scattering approaches have shown their effectiveness in imaging inaccessible regions. Unfortunately, the problem at hand is strongly non-linear and ill-posed and therefore it is often solved by seeking for the global minimum of a proper functional. Nevertheless, it is also necessary to introduce suitable regularizations in order to improve the convergence of the reconstruction process toward a reliable solution. In this context, the paper presents a method that exploits an energetic constraint to define a regularization term of the cost functional. A numerical validation with single and multiple inhomogeneous lossless targets demonstrates that an improvement of the reconstruction accuracy is achievable without introducing significant computational complexity to the inverse scattering problem.
