Abstract

The repetitive computation of the forward problem in distorted Born iterative method (DBIM)-type inversion method is time-consuming and memory-costly, especially in dealing with 3-D inverse scattering problem. An improved subspace-regularized DBIM is proposed for the efficient solution of the 3-D inverse problem, which introduces the multilevel Green's function interpolation method (MLGFIM) to accelerate the computation of the forward problem. In order to stabilize the inversion, an improved subspace-regularized DBIM is used with one new subspace-regularized induced current term in the cost function in virtue of truncated singular value decomposition (TSVD). To further reduce the computation burden, the incident field induced with updated inhomogeneous background medium is used approximately as the total field in the cost function, which saves one forward solver calculation in each iteration. Besides, the resource-intensive multiplication of inhomogeneous Green's function can be avoided, which further improves the efficiency. Three numerical and two Fresnel experimental examples are given to demonstrate both the efficiency of the forward solver and the accuracy of the inversion algorithm.
