A new reconstruction algorithm for diffraction tomography is presented. The algorithm is based on the minimization of a functional which is defined as the norm of the discrepancy between the measured scattering amplitude and the calculated one for an estimated object function. By using the conjugate gradient method to minimize the functional, one can derive an iterative formula for getting the object function. Numerical results for some two-dimensional scatterers show that the algorithm is very effective in reconstructing refractive index distributions to which the first-order Born approximation can not be applied. In addition, the number of iterations is reduced by using a priori information about the outer boundary of the objects. Furthermore, the method is not so sensitive to the presence of noise in the scattered field data
