Abstract

We report here a design method based on smart transformation optics (STO) to control the range of the permittivity values of the materials required to manufacture transformation optics devices. In particular, we show that it is possible to reduce the maximum electric permittivity value required to realize a STO device with certain functionality by means of a simple conceptual elastic stretching process. We illustrate the design procedure with two types of collimator meta-lens designs, which we call warping space collimator meta-lens and half fisheye collimator meta-lens, respectively. We provide design examples of these two types of lenses with the help of COMSOL Multiphysics software. These two design examples are fabricated with commonly available dielectric materials by means of 3D printing technology. For the functional verification of these two collimator lenses, we provide measurement results obtained with transverse electric waves of frequency range 7-13GHz.
