Fourier Transformed Scattered Field Choose a complex frequency 0 such that k ( 0 ) is real valued There is no reason a priori to dismiss this possibility, but will it work? Close in u.h.p. Roots of dispersion relationship with real k are in l.h.p.
Simple Conducting Medium Real valued Complex in l.h.p. Complex plane Desired frequency 0 Im Re X <0 Will not be able to close in u.h.p.: can only drop contour to branch points X Branch point

Summary and Questions Have reviewed one possible approach to inversion in dispersive backgrounds Method is based on computing the temporal Fourier transform of pulsed data at complex frequencies for which the wavenumber of the background is real Method will not work for simple conducting media but appears feasible for Lorentz media The idea behind the approach suggests that it may be possible to excite non-decaying, plane wave pulses using complex frequencies Asymptotic analysis is required to determine the feasibility of the theory
