Based on the concept of complementary media and theory of coordinate transformation, a novel kind of optical device, exhibiting the multiple performances of a complementary cloak and a transparent device, is proposed. Only the axial material parameter of the proposed device is spatially variant, and the transverse material parameters are constant. The multiple functions of the proposed device are validated by full wave simulations. In addition, the effects of loss and parameter perturbations on the performances of the device are also investigated. These results can be used in field of antenna protection and other electromagnetic field engineering.
