By using a first-principles approach, we investigate the pathway of electric displacement fields in shaped graded dielectric materials existing in the form of cloaks with various shapes. We reveal a type of apparently negative electric polarization (ANEP), which is due to a symmetric oscillation of the paired electric permittivities, satisfying a sum rule. The ANEP does not occur for a spherical cloak, but appears up to maximum as a/b (the ratio between the long and short principal axis of the…

Controlling Thermal Conduction by Graded Materials
Manipulating thermal conductivities are fundamentally important for controlling the conduction of heat at will. Thermal cloaks and concentrators, which have been extensively studied recently, are
Transformation Electrics: Cloaking and Rotating Electric Current
Transformation optics provides great versatility for precisely manipulating electromagnetic waves. It has been extended to other fields including acoustics, thermotics, and electrics. Taking


Electromagnetic analysis of cylindrical invisibility cloaks and the mirage effect.
A finite-element analysis of a diffraction problem involving a coated cylinder enabling the electromagnetic cloaking of a lossy object with sharp wedges located within its core finds that the electromagnetic field radiated by such a source located a fraction of a wavelength from the cloak is perturbed by less than 1%.
Shaped graded materials with an apparent negative thermal conductivity
Based on a first-principles approach, we exploit a class of shaped graded materials in which thermal energy is apparently controlled to transfer from a region of lower temperature to a region of
Negative refraction in chiral composite materials
Based on the Maxwell–Garnett approximation, we obtain the negative refraction in chiral composites in which electrically small isotropic chiral inclusions are randomly embedded in an isotropic
Specific multiple-scattering process in acoustic cloak with multilayered homogeneous isotropic materials
It was qualitatively demonstrated through finite-element full-wave simulations that acoustic cloak can be constructed by using concentric multilayered structure with alternating homogeneous isotropic
Optical Response of Metal-Dielectric Composite Containing Interfacial Layers*
A phenomenological approach to investigate the effect of interfacial layers on the absorption of metal-dielectric composite at elevated temperatures is put forward by making use of a model in which
Second- and third-harmonic generations for a nondilute suspension of coated particles with radial dielectric anisotropy
Abstract.We derive expressions for the effective nonlinear susceptibility tensors for both the second harmonic generation (SHG) and induced third harmonic generation (THG) of nonlinear composite

Regions of anomalous localized resonance, such as occurring near superlenses, are shown to lead to cloaking effects. This occurs when the resonant field generated by a polarizable line or point
Two-dimensional eccentric elliptic electromagnetic cloaks
A spatial transformation technique is applied to an important class of two-dimensional electromagnetic cloaks that do not possess rotational symmetry around the longitudinal axis. These cloaks are
Electromagnetic wave interactions with a metamaterial cloak.
We establish analytically the interactions of electromagnetic wave with a general class of spherical cloaks based on a full wave Mie scattering model. We show that for an ideal cloak the total
Optical cloaking with metamaterials
This work presents the design of a non-magnetic cloak operating at optical frequencies, and the principle and structure of the proposed cylindrical cloak are analysed and the general recipe for the implementation of such a device is provided.
