At the Signal and Images lab, ISTI-CNR, we are developing a new algorithm to reconstruct the permittivity range profile of a layered medium from microwave backscattering data. The algorithm is based on a particle swarm strategy to optimize a specific edge-preserving objective functional. Our technique is able to efficiently find the global optimum of the objective functional, while preserving the discontinuities in the reconstructed profile.
