Abstract

In this paper, an analysis of the spectral composition of the scattered field from coated metallic cylinders is performed, focusing particularly on the cloaking of electrically large structures. An expression of the scattering coefficients is derived, considering both a dielectric and a metasurface coating. Modeling the metasurface as a surface impedance boundary condition, the surface impedance, which annuls one harmonic of the scattered field, is formulated in a closed and compact form. Moreover, in the case of cylinders with radius comparable with the wavelength of interest, it is demonstrated that a reduction of the scattering is possible by using a homogeneous metasurface coating, which presents a positive surface reactance. In particular, a reduction of the scattering width of 4 dB is achieved for a cylinder radius of $ a = 0.917{\lambda _0} $.
