    © 2017 Optical Society of America. When imaging through layered media such as walls, the contents and thickness of the wall layers are generally not known a priori. Furthermore, compensating for their effects can be computationally intensive, as this generally requires modelling the transmission and reflection of complex fields through layered media. We propose a blind deconvolution method that does not require knowledge of the wall layers by directly estimating a circularly symmetric Green’s function that models the transmission through the wall layers, simultaneously addressing both problems. We experimentally demonstrate this technique by measuring the reflection through a multilayered structure of building materials at the K-band microwave frequencies, and using the blind deconvolution method to find the image of a reflective object behind the layers.
