Direct sampling method in inverse electromagnetic scattering problem

Abstract : The non-iterative imaging problem within the inverse electromagnetic scattering framework using the direct sampling method (DSM) is considered. Thanks to the combination of the asymptotic expression of the scattered near-field or far-field and of the small obstacle hypothesis the analytical expressions of the DSM indicator function are presented in various configurations such as 2D/3D configurations and/or mono-/multi-static configurations and/or limited-/full-view case and/or mono-/multi-frequency case. Once the analytical expression obtained, its structure is analyzed and improvements proposed. Our approach is validated using synthetic data and experimental ones when available. First, the mathematical structure of DSM at a fixed frequency in 2D various scattering problems is established allowing a theoretical analysis of its efficiency and limitations. To overcome the known limitations an alternative direct sampling method (DSMA) is proposed. Next, the multi-frequency case is investigated by introducing and analyzing the multi-frequency DSM (MDSM) and the multi-frequency DSMA (MDSMA).Finally, our approach is extended to 3D inverse electromagnetic scattering problems for which the choice of the polarization of the test dipole is a key parameter. Thanks to our analytical analysis it can be made based on the polarization of the incident field.
