Review of some transformation-optics and illusion-optics devices made of metamaterials

Abstract:

In this presentation I will show the recent progress on metamaterial researches conducted at Southeast University, China. I will present some new illusion-optics devices, the electromagnetic black hole, the two-dimensional (2D) compact-size broadband carpet cloak, the three-dimensional (3D) broadband carpet cloak, 2D and 3D gradient-index planar lens antennas, and Luneburg lens antenna, all of which are made of metamaterials.
