Abstract

A nonlinear reconstruction scheme based in the Distorted Born Iterative Method (DBIM) applied to metallic scatterers is presented to solve two-dimensional inverse scattering problems. Further, a Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm (MLFMA) in combination with a conjugate gradient (CG) scheme is introduced to solve the forward and inverse scattering problem involved in the DBIM algorithm. Numerical reconstruction results obtained from synthetic scattering data are discussed.
