We consider the optimization approach to the acousto-electric imaging problem. Assuming that the electric conductivity distribution is a small perturbation of a constant, we investigate the least-squares estimate analytically using (multiple) Fourier series, and confirm the widely observed fact that acousto-electric imaging has high resolution and is statistically stable. We also analyze the case of partial data and the case of limited-view data, in which some singularities of the conductivity…

Acousto-electromagnetic Tomography
A new inversion formula for the permittivity distribution is provided from cross-correlations between the electromagnetic boundary measurements in the perturbed medium and those in the unperturbed one and it is shown that it is possible to achieve a significant resolution enhancement.

Structural damage detection via impediographic tomography
Numerical results show that, although both approaches perform well in terms of damage identification, localization, and sizing, the LM technique allows higher flexibility in handling imperfect data.
An application of impediography to the high sensitivity and high resolution identification of structural damage
In this study we explore the use of impediographic techniques to perform damage detection in plate-like metal structures. Impediography relies on the piezo-resistive coupling of the host structure to

Acousto-electric tomography
Although the electric impedance of biological tissues is highly sensitive to their physiological and pathological status, pure electrical impedance tomography (EIT) has very poor spatial resolution.
