We present a new linear sampling method for determining the shape of scattering objects imbedded in a known inhomogeneous medium from a knowledge of the scattered electromagnetic field due to a point source incident field at fixed frequency. The method does not require any a prior information on the physical properties of the scattering object and, under some restrictions, avoids the need to compute the Green’s tensor for the background medium. 1.

Abstract. We investigate a time harmonic acoustic scattering problem by a penetrable inclusion with compact support embedded in the free space. We consider cases where an observer can produce incident plane waves and measure the far field pattern of the resulting scattered field only in a finite number of directions. In this context, we say that a wavenumber is a transmission eigenvalue if the corresponding relative scattering matrix has a non trivial kernel. Under certain assumptions on the physical coefficients of the inclusion, we show that the transmission eigenvalues form a (possibly empty) discrete set. Then, in a second step, for a given real wavenumber and a given domain D, we present a constructive tech-nique to prove that there exist inclusions supported in D for which the corresponding relative scattering matrix is null. These inclusions have the important property to be impossible to detect from far field measurements. The approach leads to a numerical algorithm which is described at the end of the paper and which allows to provide examples of (approximated) invisible inclusions. Key words. Interior transmission problem, invisibility, energy identities, asymptotic analysis, relative scattering matrix. 1
