A modified iterative Born method is applied for three-dimensional inversion of a lossless dielectric target embedded in a lossy half-space. The forward solver employs a modified form of the extended Born method, and the half-space Green's function is computed efficiently via the complex-image technique. Example results are shown, with all scattering data based on a computational model, utilizing a rigorous forward solver distinct from that employed in the inversion. In addition, distinct gridding schemes are used in the forward and inverse solvers. Simple Tikhonov regularization is found to yield adequate results for inversion of noisy data.
