Paper Abstract

Following our previous study of inverse scattering with one-dimensional perfectly conducting surfaces, we consider the applicability of the proposed inverse scattering algorithm to the case of surfaces of more general materials. In particular, results corresponding to glass and silver surfaces are presented. The algorithm, based on wavefront matching principles, is used to reconstruct one-dimensional surface profiles from far-field amplitude scattering data calculated using rigorous techniques. The study is complemented by considerations of the tolerance of the algorithm to noise in the data.
