Cramer-Rao study of one-dimensional scattering systems: Part I: Formulation


A Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) study is developed in one-dimensional (1D) space which sheds fundamental insight onto the information about multiply scattering point-like scatterers that is contained in scattering field data corresponding to transmissive, reflective, and combined trans-missive plus reflective sensing geometries, and single-and multi-frequency measurements.
