Analysis and design of an invisibility cloak based on transformation optics at microwave frequencies


Abstract: Invisibility cloaks can be constructed with electromagnetic metamaterials. In this paper, structural metamaterials are used to design an invisibility cloak. To this end, transformation optics is used to design electromagnetic parameters. These parameters are selected so that when we excite the cloak its presence does not perturb radiated fields. Therefore, we formulate the electric field both at the inner and outer parts of the cloak, when the excitation source is placed both inside and outside, and we show that the scattered fields will be suppressed due to its presence. Finally, simulation results verify that the invisibility cloak is well designed and is able to hide the cylindrical metal inside it.
