Abstract: The problem of recovering the scalar electric permittivity and magnetic permeability (respectively, $ \varepsilon $ and $ \mu $) of a medium in a bounded domain $ \Omega \subset {\mathbb{R}}^3$ by the boundary measurements on $ \partial \Omega $ is considered. As data, the value of the velocity $ c=(\varepsilon \mu )^{-1/2}$ with its normal derivative on $ \partial \Omega $ is taken, along with the response operator, which maps the tangential part $ e_\theta \mid _{\partial \Omega \times [0,2T]}$ of the electric field on the boundary to the tangential part $ h_\theta \mid _{\partial \Omega \times [0,2T]}$ of the magnetic field ($ 2T$ is the duration of measurements). With the help of the BC-method, it is established that the described data uniquely determine $ \varepsilon $ and $ \mu $ in the near-boundary layer with optical thickness $ T$, provided that the domain satisfies some geometric condition.
