Abstract

Based on linear optical transformation method, a diamond shaped reciprocal cloak with perfect invisibility in a certain direction is proposed. Compared with traditional cloaks, the object hidden inside the reciprocal cloak is not blind and can receive information from the outer region. Moreover, the reciprocal cloak is constructed of nonsingular homogeneous material parameters with reduced anisotropy that is relatively easy for practical realization. Full wave simulations validate the performance of the cloak.
