Abstract

A microwave technique is proposed to measure the permittivity function of inhomogeneous dielectric walls. The measured reflection or transmission coefficients are used to extract the permittivity function of the dielectric walls. To solve the problem an optimization-based procedure is used. The usefulness of the proposed method is verified using some examples.
