Abstract

An equiscattering design is further analyzed which is able to reproduce exactly the scattered field of an externally illuminated object by combining the concept of complementary media and transformation optics. Having designed an invisibility cloak with a negative refractive material shell coated on a core medium, the equiscatterer of the object is realized by embedding the respective transformed object inside the core medium. The validity of the equiscattering effect is confirmed by an analytical approach applied to concentric dielectric cylindrical media.
