Paper Abstract

Numerical methods recently developed to invert scattered field data are presented in this paper. Based on the extension to the well-known first-order Born approximation for linearized inverse scattering, these methods allow a wider class of more strongly scattering objects to be imaged. The distorted-wave approximation is described and the further approximations enabling it to be used for inverse scattering problems are given. These algorithms are evaluated using both numerical simulations and experimental data collected from known scattering objects.
