Abstract

Millimetre-wave (mmW) imaging is an emerging technique for non-destructive
testing. Since many polymers are transparent in this frequency range, mmW
imaging is an attractive means in the testing of polymer devices, and images
of relatively high resolution are possible. This contribution presents an
algorithm for the precise imaging of arbitrarily shaped dielectric objects.
The reconstruction algorithm is
capable of automatically detecting the object's contour, followed by a
material-sensitive reconstruction of the object's interior. As an example we
examined a polyethylene device with simulated material defects, which could
be depicted precisely.
