Paper Abstract

In this paper we apply a tomographic approach to the reconstruction of dielectric objects embedded in a layered medium, showing its reconstruction capability and robustness against noise. The problem is tackled with reference to a two-dimensional geometry and within the framework of the linear Distorted Born Approximation (DBA). Relying on the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) of the operator describing the problem, the favorable effect of the increase in the band of adopted frequencies is also outlined. Numerical examples are provided to assess effectiveness robustness of the proposed approach against noise on data.
