    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Carpet cloaking is proposed to hide an object on a dielectric halfspace from electromagnetic (EM) detection. A two-dimensional conformal transformation specified by an analytic function is utilized for the design. Only one nonsingular material parameter distribution suffices for the characterization. The cloaking cover situates on the dielectric half-space, and consists of a lossless upper part for EM wave redirection and an absorbing bottom layer for inducing correct reflection coefficient and absorbing transmission. Numerical simulations with Gaussian beam incidence are performed for verification. The broadband behavior of the carpet cloaking is also illustrated.
