We investigate the decomposition of the time-reversal operator (DORT under its French language acronym) method applied to ultrawideband electromagnetic pulses propagating in dispersive and (continuous) inhomogeneous random media where volumetric scattering effects are important. We analyze the effects of random medium statistics on the time-reversal operator (TRO) eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and on subsequent selective focusing performance. We develop and employ a full time-domain DORT by tracking the excitation eigenvectors from a singular value decomposition of the TRO over the entire bandwidth of operation. We also study effects of frequency dispersion and conduction losses on the TRO and consider dispersion/loss compensation techniques to improve DORT operation in those cases
