  author={Pai-Yen Chen and Christos Argyropoulos and Andrea Al{\'u}},
We introduce the concept and practical design of broadband, ultrathin cloaks based on non-Foster, negatively capacitive metasurfaces. By using properly tailored, active frequency-selective screens conformal to an object, within the realm of practical realization, is shown to enable drastically reduced scattering over a wide frequency range in the microwave regime, orders of magnitude broader than any available passive cloaking technology. The proposed active cloak may impact not only… Expand
Controlling frequency dispersion in electromagnetic invisibility cloaks
This work design and simulate a spherical cloak which takes into account the dispersive nature of relative permittivity and permeability tensors realized by plasma-like metamaterials and works over a broad frequency-band even though these materials are of a highly dispersion nature. Expand
Conformal metasurface-coated dielectric waveguides for highly confined broadband optical activity with simultaneous low-visibility and reduced crosstalk
Jiang et al. demonstrate that a thin metasurface coating can control several optical properties simultaneously over a broad frequency range, offering new pathways for future miniaturization of dielectric waveguide-based systems with simultaneous polarization and scattering control. Expand
Broadband microwave metamaterial absorber with lumped resistor loading
Narrow absorption bandwidth has been a fundamental drawback hindering many metamaterial absorbers for practical applications. In this paper, by loading lumped resistors, we have successfully designedExpand
Multifunctional Metasurfaces: Design Principles and Device Realizations
In recent years, we have witnessed a rapid expansion of using super-thin metasurfaces to manipulate light or electromagnetic wave in a subwavelength scale. However, most designs are confined to aExpand
Active Cloaking of a Non-Uniform Scatterer
The design and experimental demonstration of a low-profile, active cloak capable of concealing a complex, metallic, polygonal target is presented and demonstrates the feasibility of this kind of active cloaking for more complex scatterers containing flat surfaces and edges. Expand
Do Cloaked Objects Really Scatter Less
We discuss the global scattering response of invisibility cloaks over the entire frequency spectrum, from static to very high frequencies. Based on linearity, causality and energy conservation weExpand
Superdirective leaky radiation from a PT-synthetic metachannel.
It is introduced here how the concept of CPAL action provoked in PT-symmetric metasurfaces can be translated into practical implementation of a low-loss zero/low-index open channel supporting a nearly undamped fast-wave propagation. Expand

A specific coating for the achievement of the mantle cloaking of a metallic cylinder in the Terahertz frequencies is investigated. The coat is realized starting from a dielectric layer covering theExpand
Design investigation of mantle-cloak for a PEC cylindrical object under oblique incidence of TM and TE waves
Abstract In this paper, the possibility of cloaking a metallic cylinder is investigated for a wide range of angles of obliquely incidence TE and TM wave using the well-known mantle cloakingExpand
Closed-form harmonic contrast control with surface impedance coatings for conductive objects
The problem of suppressing the scattering from conductive objects is addressed in terms of harmonic contrast reduction. A unique compact closed-form solution for a surface impedance Zs(m,  kr) isExpand
