This paper presents a method based on Tikhonov regularization for solving one-dimensional inverse tomography problems that arise in combustion applications. In this technique, Tikhonov regularization transforms the ill-conditioned set of equations generated by onion-peeling deconvolution into a well-conditioned set that is more stable to measurement errors that arise in experimental settings. The performance of this method is compared to that of onion-peeling and Abel three-point deconvolution by solving for a known field variable distribution from projected data contaminated with artificially-generated error. The results show that Tikhonov deconvolution provides a more accurate field distribution than onion-peeling and Abel three-point deconvolution, and is more stable than the other two methods as the distance between projected data points decreases.
