Abstract

original image

The exciting area of invisibility cloaking is reviewed by Andrea Alù and co-workers on page OP281. Various solutions for invisibility cloaking using metamaterials, metasurfaces, graphene and plasmonic materials in different spectral ranges are discussed. Particular focus is placed on scattering-cancellation approaches, highlighting material challenges, venues and opportunities for plasmonicand mantle-cloaking techniques, in various frequency windows, and for several devices and applications.
