Cloaking an arbitrary object via anomalous localized resonance: the cloak is independent of the object

n this paper, we present various schemes of cloaking an arbitrary object via anomalous localized resonance and provide their analysis in two and three dimensions. This is a way to cloak an object using negative index materials in which the cloaking device is independent of the object. As a result, we show that in the two dimensional quasi-static regime an annular plasmonic structure of coefficient -1 cloaks small but finite size objects nearby. We also discuss its connections with superlensing and cloaking using complementary media. In particular, we confirm the possibility that a lens can act like a cloak and conversely. This possibility was raised about a decade ago in the literature.
