Abstract: With the development of various recent tools to control electromagnetic wave propagation, such as transformation optics, the long-sought dream of rendering objects invisible has become a matter of practical implementation. However, the required index profile derived with such techniques leads to material properties that are not readily available in nature and, hence, various experimental simplifications and performance scarifications are inevitable. Therefore, it has been a widespread belief that perfect cloaking cannot be achieved with conventional materials. Here, we follow a different direction and provide a unique method based on scattering cancellation rather than conventional coordinate transformations, and show that perfect invisibility can be indeed achieved for any specified angular range and operational bandwidth by employing merely all-dielectric materials. The presented method is based on our recently proposed generalized Hilbert-like transform [1] that is able to eliminate the undesired scattered waves for any type of object, regardless of its shape/size, by directly tailoring the object's scattering potential. In this direction, we show that the impinging wave on an object can be perfectly restored owing to the effective cancellation of the scattered waves emanating from the object and the surrounding index profile. We demonstrate this effect by experimental analyses conducted at the gigahertz regime. The proposed method represents an important step towards the ultimate goal of cloaking arbitrarily large objects at various wavelength regimes and may have profound implications especially in non-invasive near-field probing applications, where conventional transformation optics based cloaks fail to provide the interaction of the wave with the object.
