Convexification and experimental data for a 3D inverse scattering problem with the moving point source

by   Vo Anh Khoa, et al.

Inverse scattering problems of the reconstructions of physical properties of a medium from boundary measurements are substantially challenging ones. This work aims to verify the performance on experimental data of a newly developed convexification method for a 3D coefficient inverse problem for the case of objects buried in a sandbox a fixed frequency and the point source moving along an interval of a straight line. Using a special Fourier basis, the method of this work strongly relies on a new derivation of a boundary value problem for a system of coupled quasilinear elliptic equations. This problem, in turn, is solved via the minimization of a Tikhonov-like functional weighted by a Carleman Weight Function. The global convergence of the numerical procedure is established analytically. The numerical verification is performed using experimental data, which are raw backscatter data of the electric field. These data were collected using a microwave scattering facility at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
