Application of T-matrix method in solving mixed boundary separable obstacle problem.


The practical problem of imaging scatterers enclosed by separable obstacles with mixed boundary is addressed. Both the unknown scatterers and the known obstacle media can be mixture of dielectric and perfect electric conducting (PEC) materials. The scattering phenomenon of such problem is well modeled by T-matrix method. By usage of separable prior information, the obstacle media are treated as known scatterers rather than part of the background. The number of unknowns is thus reduced greatly. After recovering the profiles of scatterers by T-matrix method, a criterion is further provided to classify the PEC and dielectric scatterers. Various numerical examples are presented to show the effectiveness and good performance of the method.
