Abstract
The EMI response of a target can be accurately modeled by a sum of real exponentials. However, it is difficult to obtain the model parameters from measurements when the number of exponentials is unknown. We have previously proposed estimation methods for the model parameters from a single measurement. In this paper, we propose to increase the estimation accuracy by utilizing the multiple measurements often available for a given target. The property of measurements sharing the same relaxation frequencies is exploited to increase the estimation performance. The proposed method is shown to deliver robust estimation using synthetic, laboratory data, and field data.
