– This paper describes a new microwave diagnostic tool for nondestructive evaluation. The approach, developed in the spatial domain, is based on the numerical computation of the inhomogeneous Green's function in order to fully exploit all the available a-priori information of the domain under test. The heavy reduction of the computational complexity of the(More)
Electromagnetic inverse scattering techniques are considered to reconstruct the permit-tivity and the velocity profiles of axially moving cylindrical targets. Two approaches are proposed. One of these is based on a two-step procedure. It is shown that it provides good approximations of the profiles to be reconstructed in a very efficient way, when the peak(More)
The inspection of 2-D scatterers buried in a lossy half-space from field measurements is formulated within the framework of the second-order Born approximation (SOBA) of the inverse scattering problem. An iterative multi-scaling approach (IMSA) is combined with a two-step inexact-Newton (IN) algorithm to solve the arising problem. A set of preliminary(More)
