Inverse scattering problems without knowing the source term

The solution of inverse scattering problems always presupposed knowledge of the incident wave-field and require repeated computations of the forward problem, for which knowing the source term is crucial. In [26], we present a three-step strategy to solve inverse scattering problems when the time signature of the source is unknown. The proposed strategy combines three recent techniques: (i) wave splitting to retrieve the incident and the scattered wavefields, (ii) time-reversed absorbing conditions (TRAC) for redatuming the data inside the computational domain, (iii) adaptive eigenspace inversion (AEI) to solve the inverse problem. Numerical results illustrate step-by-step the feasibility of the proposed strategy.
