Course Purposes:
The exploitation of electromagnetic field data as a sensing tool paves the way to a number of interesting engineering applications including antenna testing and characterization, biomedical diagnostics, humanitarian demining, archeological prospection, through-the-wall imaging, non‚Äźdestructive testing of transport infrastructures and buildings, and many others.
 
This course, after reviewing fundamental equations and main difficulties of inverse problems in high-frequency electromagnetics, will focus on classical and recently introduced solution procedures and algorithms, discussing capabilities, limitations, and perspectives of both approximate and 'exact' reconstruction methods. Applicative examples, including exercises and lessons regarding specific applications, will corroborate the developed concepts.
 
The course is targeted to PhD studentis, Researchers, Scientists, and Engineers who are willing to:
    (a) learn about the basics of microwave diagnostics and imaging;
    (b) enhance their background on inverse problems in electromagnetics;
    (c) know about the leading edge and more recent advances on inversion algorithms;
    (d) take an overview on the applications of inverse scattering techniques to research, industrial, and civil frameworks.
 
Topics:
Day 1: Introduction to inverse scattering and basic theory
Day 2: Qualitative imaging methods
Day 3: Quantitative imaging: approximated and complete methods
Day 4: Imaging applications
                - Antenna Diagnostics
                - BIO Applications
                - GPR Applications
Day 5: Further issues and advanced topics
