Paper Abstract

Wolf's formulation for inverse scattering in the first Born approximation is reviewed and discussed from an experimental point of view. Some of the experimental problems associated with obtaining enough data to satisfy the requirements of this theory are described, and a method for using symmetry to reduce the data requirements for a class of scatterers is explained. A successful experiment that employed this theory to reconstruct structure in an object with rectangular structure is reviewed. It appears that this theory is extremely difficult to apply to a more general scatterer with no simplifying symmetries.
