Huygens Principle Based Imaging of Multilayered Objects with Inclusions
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research B, Vol. 58, 139-149, 2014
Abstract
The application of a recently introduced microwave imaging technique based on the Huygens principle (HP), has been extended to multilayered objects with inclusions in this paper. The methodology of HP permits the capture of contrast such that different material properties within the region of interest can be discriminated in the final image, and its simplicity removes the need to solve inverse problems when forward propagating the waves. Therefore the procedure can identify and localize significant scatterers inside a multilayered volume, without having apriori knowledge on the dielectric properties of the target object. Additionally, an analyticallybased approach for analyzing UltraWide Bandwidth (UWB) body propagation is presented, where the body is modeled as a 3-layer stratified cylinder with an eccentric inclusion. Validation of the technique through both simulations and measurements on multilayered cylindrical objects with inclusions has been performed.
