Abstract

Multiple scattering of an electromagnetic wave as it passes through an object is a fundamental problem that limits the performance of current imaging systems. In this paper, we describe a new technique-called Series Expansion with Accelerated Gradient Descent on Lippmann-Schwinger Equation (SEAGLE)-for robust imaging under multiple scattering based on a combination of a new nonlinear forward model and a total variation (TV) regularizer. The proposed forward model can account for multiple scattering, which makes it advantageous in applications where linear models are inaccurate. Specifically, it corresponds to a series expansion of the scattered wave with an accelerated-gradient method. This expansion guarantees the convergence even for strongly scattering objects. One of our key insights is that it is possible to obtain an explicit formula for computing the gradient of our nonlinear forward model with respect to the unknown object, thus enabling fast image reconstruction with the state-of-the-art fast iterative shrinkage/thresholding algorithm (FISTA). The proposed method is validated on both simulated and experimentally measured data.

Accelerated Image Reconstruction for Nonlinear Diffractive Imaging
The problem of reconstructing an object from the measurements of the light it entails is common in numerous imaging applications. The most popular formulations of the problem are based on linearizing the object-light relationship. There is an increased interest in considering nonlinear formulations that can account for multiple light

A Recursive Born Approach to Nonlinear Inverse Scattering
The method combines IBA with an edge-preserving total variation (TV) regularizer. Simulations illustrate that, by accounting for multiple scattering, the method successfully recovers the permittivity distribution.

High-Contrast Reflection Tomography with Total-Variation Constraints
Inverse scattering is the process of estimating the spatial distribution of the scattering potential of an object by measuring the scattered wavefields around it. Unlike conventional transmission tomography, the reflection regime is severely ill-posed since the measured wavefields contain far less spatial frequency information of the target object.
