Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to review some of the inverse methods in electromagnetics for the reconstruction of one-dimensional complex refractive-index profiles, using transient or spectral data. Two different categories of inversion schemes, viz., the differential-inverse and integral-inverse algorithms, are discussed.
