Abstract

In this talk, I will describe the recent theoretical and computational progress on our work on regularized transformation-optics cloaking. Ideal cloak makes use of singular metamaterials, posing much challenge for practical realization. Regularization is incorporated into the construction in order to avoid the singular structures.
