Tunable Scattering Cancellation of Light Using Anisotropic Cylindrical Cavities

Engineered core-shell cylinders are good candidates for applications in invisibility and cloaking. In particular, hyperbolic nanotubes demonstrate tunable ultra-low scattering cross section in the

Tunable invisibility cloaking by using isolated graphene-coated nanowires and dimers

An analytical formula is derived that enables fast evaluation of the spectral window with a substantial reduction in scattering efficiency for a sufficiently thin cylinder that leads to tunable resonant invisibility that can be achieved via modification of graphene chemical potential monitored by the gate voltage.

Optimization of multilayered nanotubes for maximal scattering cancellation.

An optimization for multilayered nanotubes that minimizes the scattering efficiency for a given polarization is derived, and the predominant causes leading to such invisibility effect are critically discussed.

Multi-frequency super-scattering from sub-wavelength graphene-coated nanotubes

A cylindrical multilayered structure with three coupled graphene shells is shown to behave as a dual-band super-scatterer at mid-infrared frequencies. Under the 2D plasmonic nature of graphene

Transmission features of filter comprised of gold nanowire-based hyperbolic metamaterial was touched upon. The chosen wavelength range of operation was 400- 1400 nm. The results were obtained in

Scattering from Multilayered Graphene-Based Cylindrical and Spherical Particles

This chapter discusses various approaches for calculating the modifiedMie-Lorenz coefficients of the graphene-based multilayered cylindrical and spherical geometries. Initially, the Kubo model of

Electromagnetic wave propagation in alternating material-metamaterial layered structures

Using the transfer matrix method, we examine the parametric behavior of the transmittance of an electromagnetic plane wave propagating in the lossless regime through a periodic multilayered system as

Comparison of cylinder- and planar-effective medium approximations on calculation of scattering properties of cylindrical hyperbolic metamaterials

In this paper, we compare the applicability of the planar-effective medium approximation (PEMA) and cylinder-effective medium approximation (CEMA) for analyzing the scattering properties of



Invisible Hyperbolic Metamaterial Nanotube at Visible Frequency

The new method to design and tune an invisible nanostructure represents a significant step toward the practical implementation of unique nanophotonic devices such as invisible photodetectors and low-scattering near-field optical microscopes.

Some considerations on the transmissivity of trirefringent metamaterials

Nonlocal effects in metal–dielectric (MD) periodic nanostructures may typically be observed when the plasmonic particles and gaps are on the scale of a few tens of nanometers, enabling under certain

We analyzed surface-wave propagation that takes place at the boundary between a semi-infinite dielectric and a multilayered metamaterial, the latter with indefinite permittivity and cut normally to

Here it is seen how a proper design of these lossless metamaterial covers near their plasma resonance may induce a dramatic drop in the scattering cross section, making these objects nearly "invisible" or "transparent" to an outside observer--a phenomenon with obvious applications for low-observability and noninvasive probe design.

Tunablity of the unconventional Fano resonances in coated nanowires with radial anisotropy.

With the adjustment of the inner size and the permittivity elements of the anisotropic core, tunable Fano-like profiles can be realized and may be useful for potential applications in different fields of nanotechnology.

Multifrequency optical invisibility cloak with layered plasmonic shells.

It is shown, theoretically and with numerical simulations, how covering a dielectric or conducting object of a certain size with this multilayered cloak may reduce its "visibility" by several orders of magnitude simultaneously at multiple frequencies.

Abstract. We investigated optical properties of nanostructured metal-dielectric multilayered lattices under the conditions of epsilon-near-zero (ENZ), a concept derived from the effective-medium

We study a double‐shell cloak for hiding objects with the dimensions comparable with the radiation wavelength. We demonstrate that the structure consisting of a dielectric layer and a layer of an

An array of metallic fins embedded in a high-permittivity fluid has been used to create a metamaterial plasmonic shell capable of cloaking a dielectric cylinder, yielding over 75% reduction of total scattering width.
