In this paper we investigate an inverse one-dimensional heat conduction problem in multi-layer medium. The inverse problem is first formulated in the frequency domain via Fourier transform technique. An effective regularization method for the stable reconstruction of solution is given with proven error estimates. Several numerical examples are constructed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
