Scattering amplitude data for several objects:


The bounding box is (-1,-1) to (1,1) m, and the frequency is 300 MHz.
  1. scat1_sa.dat
  2. scat2_sa.dat
  3. scat3_sa.dat
  4. scat4_sa.dat
The file format is:
Incident angle (degrees), Scattered angle, Real part of scattering amplitude, Imaginary part
(exp(j omega t) time convention)

To load the files, use

sa = load('scat1_sa.dat');
F = sa(:,3)+j*sa(:,4);
NA = sqrt(length(F));
F = reshape(F,NA,NA); % incident angles along columns, scattered angles along rows
