Adaptive finite element method in reconstruction of dielectrics from backscattered data
Paper in proceedings, 2013
The validity of the adaptive finite element method for reconstruction of dielectrics in a symmetric structure is verified on time-resolved data in two dimensions. This problem has practical interest in the reconstruction of the structure of photonic crystals or in the imaging of land mines. Dielectric permittivity, locations, and shapes/sizes of dielectric abnormalities are accurately imaged using adaptive finite element algorithm.
