The linear shape reconstruction method based on the generalized multiple measurement vectors model is a newly proposed approach which is able to effectively retrieve the morphological information of dielectric/metallic scatterers with competitive imaging resolution. In this letter, we have extended this approach to quantitative inversion, and the proposed approach turns out to be effective even for complicated scatterers and highly efficient in comparison to nonlinear iterative methods. The inverted results obtained by processing the transverse magnetic polarized Fresnel data-sets of the year 2005 demonstrate the validity of the proposed method in real applications.
