Abstract

We propose and study a numerical procedure for the reconstruction of surface profiles from far-field scattering data. The algorithm, based on wave-front-matching principles, is used to reconstruct one-dimensional surface profiles from amplitude scattering data calculated by using rigorous techniques. The study is complemented by the development of a sampling strategy and considerations of the tolerance of the algorithm to noise in the data.
