Abstract

In this chapter, we will discuss the approach of utilizing transformation optic approach and metamaterial technology to construct various cloaking devices in experiment. We take the advantage of rapid design approach to demonstrate the reduced cloaking device in free space. Then we discuss the next-generation cloaking device of broadband and low-loss feature. The experiment at microwave verifies the broadband complex cloaking design.
