Abstract

Currently, invisibility devices are increasingly approaching practical application requirements, such as using easily obtained materials for construction and hiding dynamic objects. Here, using phase retrieval and computer-generated holography techniques, we design an invisibility system in simulation to produce a phase-conjugation signal that changes with the dynamic object to hide it. This system is highly selective for the hidden objects, i.e., it only hides the target object and has no effect on the others. Such function may provide our invisibility system with great potential in special fields, such as biology and military applications for living and dynamic target recognition, selective camouflaging, and others.
