This paper is concerned with an inverse surface scattering problem in near-field optical imaging, which is to reconstruct the scattering surface of a dielectric medium with a resolution beyond the diffraction limit. It is a nontrivial extension of the authors' work on near-field imaging of infinite rough surfaces from impenetrable to penetrable media [G. Bao and P. Li, SIAM J. Appl. Math., 73 (2013), pp. 2162--2187], where a more sophisticated transmission problem needs to be considered. The…
