Improved GPR image quality by truncating the bandwidth of the Fourier Transform in 2D diffraction tomographic inversion
Lum, Sebastian, Tang, Tee G., & Lyall, James S. (2008) Improved GPR image quality by truncating the bandwidth of the Fourier Transform in 2D diffraction tomographic inversion. In IEEE International RF and Microwave Conference, 2-4 December 2008, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Diffraction tomography (DT) has been applied in ground penetrating radar (GPR) to obtain images of buried objects. In order to obtain a unique solution for the object function, a maximum frequency range should be used in a DT inversion routine. In this paper, a method is proposed to appropriately truncate the frequency range of the Fourier-transformed (FT) scattered field for a 2D DT inversion routine. This is achieved by determining the variation of the phase in the FT scattered field. The number of zero-crossings of the FT phase along the spatial axis is counted and a moving-average filter is applied to enable proper bandwidth selection. Numerical simulations are demonstrated using synthetic data with additive white Gaussian noise.
