Abstract

Based on the metamaterial cloaking technique, we propose the use of a new photon funnel to compress a plane electromagnetic (EM) wave. The theoretical analysis and numerical simulations indicate that the compression ratio can be designed optionally and the compressed wave beam remains the original wave shape without any distortions. Here we apply the method to EM waves but it can be applied to acoustic waves and other fields as well.
