### Abstract

This paper investigates the signal-subspace method approach to solve the electromagnetic inverse scattering problem using intensity-only (phase-free) data. Due to the polarization of electromagnetic fields, the relationship between the rank of the multistatic matrix and the number of small scatterers is different from that associated with the scalar wave. Multiple scattering between scatterers is considered, and the inverse scattering problem of determining the polarization tensors is nonlinear, which, however, is solved by the proposed analytical approach where no associated forward problem is iteratively evaluated.
