Abstract

We propose, design, and implement a two-dimensional dc carpet cloak for steady electric field using the transformation optics (TO) method. Based on the circuit theory, we introduce a resistor network to mimic the resulting anisotropic conducting medium. The experimental prototype is fabricated using metal film resistors, and the measured results agree perfectly well with theoretical predictions. This study gives the first experimental verification of a dc carpet cloak, which expands the application of TO theory, and has potential applications in related areas.

Schematics of the proposed dc carpet cloak. (a) The virtual space: a half-infinite conducting material on a perfectly conducting plane. (b) A triangular perfectly conducting bump (used to hide the object) covered by the carpet cloak in the physical space, which is equivalent to the virtual space. (c) Transformation used in the design, where AOB is stretched to AC’B and ACB is kept unchanged.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Simulated and measured voltage distributions. (a) The simulation result when four sides of the resistor network are matched to the background, emulating the case of an infinite conducting medium. (b) The simulation result when the top, left and right sides of the resistor network are matched to the background, while the bottom side is grounded, emulating the case of a half-infinite conducting medium. (c) The simulation result when a triangular perfectly conducting bump sticks out from the ground. (d) The simulation result when the triangular bump is covered by the proposed carpet cloak. (e) Similar to (d) but with commercially-available resistors. (f) The measured voltage distribution. Note that the dashed/solid black lines refer to position of the carpet cloak for the sake of comparison. In all figures, the contour plots are given.
