Quantum cloaking based on scattering cancellation

We set the theoretical basis for scattering cancellation and cloaking of quantum particle waves. We discuss the possibility of cloaking a spherical object from an impinging matter wave by using a homogeneous monolayer with properly tailored effective mass and potential. The method, based on cancellation of scattered s and p waves, is the quantum analog of plasmonic cloaking of electromagnetic waves. We show that it may be possible to use this cloaking mechanism to make semiconductor quantum dots effectively invisible to impinging electrons, providing interesting venues in nano-optics, quantum computing, and furtive quantum sensing.
