Reconstruction of annular bi-layered media in cylindrical waveguide section
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017

We consider a radial transverse resonance model for a circular cylindrical waveguide composed into two layers with different frequency dependent complex dielectric constants. An inverse problem with four unknowns - three physical material parameters and one dimensional dielectric layer thickness parameter - is solved by employing TE110 and TE210 modes with different radial field distribution. First the resonance frequencies and quality factors are found fitting a Lorentzian function to the ‘measured’ data, using the method of least squares. Then found resonance frequencies and quality factors are used in a second inverse Newton-Raphson algorithm which solves four transverse resonance equations in order to get four unknown parameters. The use of TE110 and TE210 models offers one-dimensional radial tomographic capability. An open ended coaxial waveguide quarter-wave resonator is added to the sensor topology, and the effect on the convergence of numerical method is investigated.
