We present a photonic crystal cloaking device at optical wavelengths based on the association of two lattices working in different regimes, namely, stop band and negative refraction. The idea is to reconstruct in phase an incident cut Gaussian modulated plane wave by using the photonic crystal dispersion properties to ensure that no light penetrates in the core of the device. It is believed that such a cloaking device could become a building block for future generations of 3D integrated optical circuits.
