The aim of this paper is to develop a mathematical framework for acousto-electromagnetic tomography and to introduce an efficient reconstruction algorithm. In electromagnetic wave imaging, the resolution is limited by the Rayleigh criterion, that is, half the operating wavelength. By mechanically perturbing the medium, we show that it is possible to achieve a significant resolution enhancement. We provide a new inversion formula for the permittivity distribution from cross-correlations between…

A Transport Model for Multi-Frequency Acousto-Optic Tomography.
In a medium where the dielectric permittivity is perturbed in the presence of an acoustic wave, optical scattering generates frequency-shifted light. In this paper we consider the inverse problem of

The aim of this paper is to develop an efficient reconstruction algorithm for ultrasound-modulated diffuse optical tomography. In diffuse optical imaging, the resolution is in general low. By
Radiative transport model for coherent acousto-optic tomography
We consider the problem of reconstructing the optical properties of a highly-scattering medium from coherent acousto-optic measurements. A method to solve the problem is proposed that is based on an
The Role of the Antenna Radiation Pattern in the Performance of a Microwave Tomographic Approach for GPR Imaging
This study provides indications about the reconstruction capabilities expectable when the imaging is performed by using a “directional” wideband transceiver to gather GPR data and discusses to what extent the imaging performance is affected by a priori knowledge of the antenna model.

Model-Based Quantitative Cross-Borehole GPR Imaging via Virtual Experiments
A new model-based linear inversion approach for cross-borehole ground penetrating radar quantitative imaging is presented, which is reliable and computationally effective as it consists of the cascade solution of two linear inverse problems.
New Stability Estimates for the Inverse Medium Problem with Internal Data
New weighted stability estimates for an electroacoustic inverse problem without assumptions on the presence of critical points are established and it is shown that the Holder stability far from the critical points deteriorates near these points to a logarithmic stability.
Interaction of Acoustic and Electromagnetic Waves in Nondestructive Evaluation and Medical Applications
Nonlinear acoustic nondestructive evaluation (NA NDE) methods have a higher sensitivity for defect detection than standard methods. These methods use various kinds of acoustic wave interactions. In
