Helmholtz-Type Regularization Method for Permittivity Reconstruction Using Experimental Phantom Data of Electrical Capacitance T
Electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) attempts to image the permittivity distribution of an object by measuring the electrical capacitance between sets of electrodes placed around its periphery. Image reconstruction in ECT is a nonlinear ill-posed inverse problem, and regularization methods are needed to stabilize this inverse problem. The reconstruction of complex shapes (sharp edges) and absolute permittivity values is a more difficult task in ECT, and the commonly used regularization methods in Tikhonov minimization are unable to solve these problems. In the standard Tikhonov regularization method, the regularization matrix has a Laplacian-type structure, which encourages smoothing reconstruction. A Helmholtz-type regularization scheme has been implemented to solve the inverse problem with complicated-shape objects and the absolute permittivity values. The Helmholtz-type regularization has a wavelike property and encourages variations of permittivity. The results from experimental...
