A new method based on a genetic algorithm for the estimation of the dielectric permittivity distribution of a cross section of an inhomogeneous cylindrical object illuminated by a low power microwave radiation field is presented. This method has been tested for some objects using simulated scattered fields. A good convergence to the expected values was obtained.
