Abstract

A ground-plane cloak is designed based on the quasi-conformal mapping method to hide a perfectly conducting object. It is fabricated with a metamaterial, a mixture of a dielectric and air. Using the dielectric mixing formula, the required volume fraction is calculated for a designed refractive index of the cloak. To guarantee the statistical isotropy of the cloak structure, many small pixels are randomly connected to form the metamaterial. A three-dimensional printing machine is used to implement the whole designed cloak structure. The performance of the cloak is experimentally analyzed over a wide frequency range for both independent polarizations. The measurement is also validated by numerical full-wave simulations. Because the quasi-conformal mapping generates unrealistic refractive indices, less than unity, those are removed. The effect of the truncation is experimentally observed and theoretically analyzed by the ray-tracing method.
