Our recent inverse scattering work has been to derive inverse scattering theory and algorithms that can be used to process practical experimental data. The theory makes use of computation of the forward scattering solution. Therefore, an efficient forward solver is instrumental to the rapid solution of the inverse scattering problem. The advantage of the more sophisticated theory over a linear theory is that it accounts for multiple scattering effects within the scatterers which often give rise to distortions in an image. A new method to invert strong scatterers, such as metallic scatterers, is presented.
