Abstract

An analytic formulation to achieve mantle cloaking of a dielectric cylinder using scattering cancellation method for TMz polarized oblique incidence is presented. To obtain this goal, a closed form expression for the required surface impedance of the covering metasurface is derived. By properly tuning the chemical potential of graphene, its surface impedance is adjusted for the invisibility of the considered cylinder for arbitrary angles of the impinging plane wave. The scattering width reduction of 15.7 dB and 21.27 dB is obtained with 3-dB bandwidth of 18.7% and 10.6% at 1 THz and 1.5 THz, respectively for the incident angle of 60 degrees. Furthermore, by optimizing the surface impedance of graphene, finite cylinders can also be cloaked. The results indicate 11.4 dB and 13.5 dB radar cross section (RCS) reduction with 30% and 22% 3-dB bandwidth for the incident angles of 45 and 80 degrees, respectively. Full-wave simulations verify the analytical results. The effect of the cloaking is examined by comparing the input impedance of a pyramidal horn antenna when it is loaded with an array of bear and cloaked cylinders positioned in the aperture.
