Paper Abstract

In this paper a numerical technique for microwave imaging based on a two-dimensional inverse scattering method is proposed. This method is a non-destructive imaging technique that combines finite difference time domain (FDTD) analysis with genetic algorithm (GA) optimization to find the dielectric properties of the object under test. The applications of the proposed method can vary from medical imaging to nondestructive testing of materials and structures.
