20 September 2002 Study of Limited-view Tomography Algorithms for Plasma Diagnostics
Author Affiliations +
Optical Computed Tomography is a useful tool for plasma diagnostics. But in plasma physics, viewing access is very limited, which leads a highly undetermined inversion problem. Two major approaches to this problem are compared in this paper: Maximum Entropy (ME) method and Simultaneous Iterative Reconstruction Technique (SIRT). The results of numerical simulation and experiments illustrate that both two algorithms can yield good qualities of reconstruction with limited views when some prior information has incorporated into calculation. Especially, in the case of two views, with prior information, a good result can even be achieved by ME algorithm.
