Synthetic aperture diffraction tomography for three-dimensional imaging

  title={Synthetic aperture diffraction tomography for three-dimensional imaging},
  author={Francesco Simonetti and Lianjie Huang},
Tomography of complex three-dimensional objects with ultrasound or microwave has been a long-standing goal since the introduction of these technologies after World War II. While current state-of-the-art systems can provide high-resolution images of cylindrical objects characterized by a two-dimensional structure, the three-dimensional case remains an open challenge owing to current limitations of sensor technology and computer power. Here, this problem is addressed by means of a synthetic… CONTINUE READING
