The reflectivity of photonic cluster is important property for nanophotonic applications especially when one needs to hide the cluster or to make it extremely visible. Currently, where are no methods clearly describing how to create the photonic cluster with the predefined reflectivity. In this paper several analytical methods are proposed to create the photonic cluster with minimal or maximal reflectivity. The proposed methods are applicable for the clusters made of small particles. 



Scattering optimization of photonic cluster: from minimal to maximal reflectivity

The optimization of the light scattered by photonic cluster made of small particles is studied with the help of the local perturbation method and special optimization algorithm. It was shown that

Cloaking and transparency for collections of particles with metamaterial and plasmonic covers.

It is shown how the coupling among the single particles, even when placed in the very near zone of each other, is drastically lowered by the presence of suitably designed covers, thus providing the possibility of making collections of objects transparent and "cloaked" to the impinging radiation even when the total physical size of the system is sensibly larger than the wavelength.

Silicon nanostructure cloak operating at optical frequencies

The ability to render objects invisible using a cloak (such that they are not detectable by an external observer) has long been a tantalizing goal1,2,3,4,5,6. Here, we demonstrate a cloak operating

Newest metamaterials promise customized optical properties

Tailoring the internal structure of metamaterials to vary optical properties controls how they transform light— leading to applications from optical cloaking to the optical counterparts of black

Metamaterials: transforming theory into reality

Metamaterials constitute a new area of science that is expanding our fundamental understanding of the behavior of the propagation of electromagnetic waves and their interactions, and providing new

Cloaking Devices, Electromagnetic Wormholes, and Transformation Optics

We describe recent theoretical and experimental progress on making objects invisible to detection by electromagnetic waves. Ideas for devices that would once have seemed fanciful may now be at least

Superlenses, metamaterials, and negative refraction.

It is shown that a set of antennas can never emulate a negative refractive index material and another possible explanation of the experimental results concerning negative refraction that is based on the coherent interference of wavelets originated in the subwavelength structures is presented.

Coupled dipole method for radiation dynamics in finite photonic crystal structures.

A coupled-dipole treatment of radiation dynamics in the weak-coupling regime in a finite three-dimensional photonic crystal structure and the results are discussed in light of the recent experimental near-field observations of the optical modes of aPhotonic crystal microcavity.

Optics: All smoke and metamaterials

An illusion device, placed near but not enclosing an object of arbitrary shape, manipulates and transforms light scattered off the object so as to give it the appearance of a completely different
