Abstract

The solution of highly nonlinear inverse scattering problems is addressed. An innovative multiresolution microwave imaging technique, which leverages on the profitable integration of the contraction integral equation for inversion (CIE-I) and the iterative multiscaling approach (IMSA), is proposed. Thanks to the joint exploitation of the features of the CIE-I formulation and the IMSA, the arising IMSA-CIE-I inversion technique provides faithful reconstructions of complex-shaped strong scatterers with enhanced resolution and computational efficiency with respect to the state-of-the-art competitive alternatives. Numerical and experimental test cases verify the effectiveness and limitations of the proposed method.
