We address the inverse scattering problem of estimating the resolution limits achievable in the reconstruction of a dielectric strip object within a two-dimensional and scalar geometry. The scattered field is observed over a bounded rectilinear domain located in the Fresnel zone, and a single-frequency multistatic–multiview configuration is considered. The analysis is performed by casting the problem as the inversion of the linearized scattering operator arising from the Born approximation and by means of its singular-value decomposition. Finally, the role of the geometrical parameters of the measurement configuration is highlighted.
