  • Abstract

We are concerned with the profile reconstruction of a penetrable grating from scattered waves measured above the periodic structure. The inverse problem is reformulated as an optimization problem, which consists of two parts: a linear severely ill-posed problem and a nonlinear well-posed problem. A Tikhonov regularization method and a Landweber iteration strategy are applied to the objective function to deal with the ill-posedness and nonlinearity. We propose a self-consistent method to recover a potential function and an approximation of grating function in each iterative step. Some details for numerical implementation are carefully discussed to reduce the computational efforts. Numerical examples for exact and noisy data are included to illustrate the effectiveness and the competitive behavior of the proposed method.
