A Multi-GPU Sources Reconstruction Method for Imaging Applications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 136, 703-724, 2013
Abstract
A profile reconstruction method using a surface inverse currents technique implemented on GPU is presented. The method makes use of the internal fields radiated by an equivalent currents distribution retrieved from scattered field information that is collected from multiple incident fields. Its main advantage over other inverse source-based techniques is the use of surface formulation for the inverse problem, which reduces the problem dimensionality thus decreasing the computational cost. In addition, the GPU implementation drastically reduces the calculation time, enabling the development of real time and accurate geometry reconstruction at a low cost.
