Born approximation to evaluate the em field variation induced by materials properties perturbations

Abstract : We investigate theoretically the electromagnetic field scattered by a manufactured object having inhomogeneous perturbations of electromagnetic material properties. A well-known objet having the same geometry and homogeneous material properties is exploited as a reference. Hence only small variations from reference configuration are of interest. Starting from the Volumetric-Perturbative Reciprocal Theory (VPRT), we derive an expression of the relationship between the reference configuration (which is supposed perfectly known) and the perturbed one in addition to the permittivity, we extend the VPRT to permeability perturbations and we derive the first and second order expression. In the case of axisymmetric objects having axisymmetric perturbations, we derive a particular expression reducing the volume integral into surface one. The resulting formulation can be used in a direct way, for example to propagate uncertainties, as well as to solve an inverse problem for example in non-destructive testing applications. © 2018 IEEE.
