Abstract

We propose multilayer cylindrical invisibility cloaks that are optimized for oblique incidences through a combination of analytic formalism of scattering and genetic optimization. We show that by using only four layers of homogeneous and anisotropic metamaterials without large values of constitutive parameters, the scattering for oblique incidences can be reduced by 2 orders. Although the optimization is done at a single incident angle, the cloak provides reduced scattering over a large range of incident angles.
