Perfect Surface Wave Cloaks

Posted on 2013-11-21 16:18:00

A new technique that allows curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves has been developed by QUEST researchers from QMUL and Exeter, in work published in the journal Physical Review Letters.

Professor of Antennas and Electromagnetics and study lead Yang Hao, said: “The design is based upon transformation optics, a concept behind the idea of the invisibility cloak. While perfect cloaking is yet to be demonstrated in free space, we have proved that it is possible for surface waves.”
