Localized potentials in electrical impedance tomography

Abstract: In this work we study localized electric potentials that have an arbitrarily high energy on some given subset of a domain and low energy on another. We show that such potentials exist for general $L^\infty_+$-conductivities in almost arbitrarily shaped subregions of a domain, as long as these regions are connected to the boundary and a unique continuation principle is satisfied. From this we deduce a simple, but new, theoretical identifiability result for the famous Calderón problem with partial data. We also show how to construct such potentials numerically and use a connection with the factorization method to derive a new non-iterative algorithm for the detection of inclusions in electrical impedance tomography.
