Paper Abstract

The information content of radiated fields and the achievable resolution limits in the reconstruction of a bounded current distribution are dealt with. The analysis refers to the scalar and one dimensional case of a rectilinear and bounded electric current distribution when data are collected over a segment location in the Fresnel or near zone, orthogonal and centered with respect to the source. In the Fresnel zone, the investigation is carried out by means of the analytical Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) of the radiation operator providing the unknown-data mapping. This has been made possible thanks to the introduction of suitable weighted scalar products both in the unknown and data spaces. In the near zone, a numerical approach based on the SVD of the radiation operator has been followed. The effect of the geometrical parameters of the measurement configuration on depth resolving power is also discussed.
