Abstract

A conformal cubical transformation-based metamaterial invisibility cloak is presented and verified, in the near and the far field, by a rigorous full-wave numerical technique based on a higher-order, large-domain finite element method, employing large anisotropic, continuously inhomogeneous generalized hexahedral finite elements, with no need for discretization of the permittivity and permeability profiles of the cloak. The analysis requires about 30 times fewer unknowns than with commercial software. To our knowledge, this is the first conformal cubical cloak and the first full-wave computational characterization of such a structure with sharp edges. The presented methodology can also be used in development of conformal, transformation-based perfectly matched layers.
