We consider the fixed angle inverse scattering problem and show that a compactly supported potential is uniquely determined by its scattering amplitude for two opposite fixed angles. We also show that almost symmetric or horizontally controlled potentials are uniquely determined by their fixed angle scattering data. This is done by establishing an equivalence between the frequency domain and the time domain formulations of the problem, and by solving the time domain problem by extending the methods of [Rakesh and M. Salo, Inverse Problems, 36 (2020), 035005] which adapts the ideas introduced in [A. Bukhgeim and M. Klibanov, Soviet Math. Dokl., 24 (1981), pp. 244--247] and [O. Imanuvilov and M. Yamamoto, Comm. Partial Differential Equations, 26 (2001), pp. 1409--1425] on the use of Carleman estimates for inverse problems.
