Born inversion method for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) image formation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Born inversion method, which was originally developed for quantum mechanics and optics, has been successfully applied to reflection seismology to reconstruct true amplitude image. Recently, the similarities between seismics and SAR surveys were pointed out, and attempts have been made to apply some of the typical seismic processing techniques to SAR image formation method. These efforts led us to develop a new SAR image formation method, exploiting Born inversion method, which accomodates specific SAR features.
