Invisibility Physics: Past, Present, and Future
Abstract The idea of hiding an object through the physics of optical invisibility or optical cloaking has been contemplated for well over a century by scientists and science fiction authors alike. In

Optical Conformal Mapping
TLDR
A general recipe for the design of media that create perfect invisibility within the accuracy of geometrical optics is developed, which can be applied to escape detection by other electromagnetic waves or sound.
Controlling Electromagnetic Fields
TLDR
This work shows how electromagnetic fields can be redirected at will and proposes a design strategy that has relevance to exotic lens design and to the cloaking of objects from electromagnetic fields.
