Abstract : We are interested in the identification of a Generalized Impedance Boundary Condition from the far fields created by one or several incident plane waves at a fixed frequency. We focus on the particular case where this boundary condition is expressed as a second order surface operator: the inverse problem then amounts to retrieve the two functions $\lambda$ and $\mu$ that define this boundary operator. We first derive a new type of stability estimate for the identification of $\lambda$ and $\mu$ from the far field when inexact knowledge of the boundary is assumed. We then introduce an optimization method to identify $\lambda$ and $\mu$, using in particular a $H^1$-type regularization of the gradient. We lastly show some numerical results in two dimensions, including a study of the impact of some various parameters, and by assuming either an exact knowledge of the shape of the obstacle or an approximate one.
