For spaceborne SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) systems, the dispersive effects of the ionosphere on the propagation of the SAR signal can be a significant source of error for interferometry. While at X-band frequencies the effects are small, current and future L-band systems would benefit from ionospheric compensation. We consider two ways to estimate the(More)
Efficient estimation of the interferometric phase and complex correlation is fundamental for the full exploitation of interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) capabilities. Particularly, when combining interferometric measures arising both from distributed and concentrated targets, the interferometric phase has to be correctly extracted in order to(More)
There is a need for scattering models that link quantitatively SAR interferometric observables to soil moisture. In this work we propose a model based on plane waves and the Born approximation, deriving first the vertical complex wavenumbers in the soil as a function of geometrical and dielectric properties and successively the complex interferometric(More)
For spaceborne SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) systems, the dispersive effects of the ionosphere on the propagation of the SAR signal can be a significant source of phase error. While at X-band frequencies the effects are small, current and future P-, Land C-band systems would benefit from ionospheric compensation to avoid errors in topographic retrieval. In(More)
Modern spallation neutron sources generate high intensity neutron beams with a broad wavelength band applied to exploring new nano- and meso-scale materials from a few atomic monolayers thick to complicated prototype device-like systems with multiple buried interfaces. The availability of high performance neutron polarizers and analyzers in neutron(More)
