Arbitrary Shape Electromagnetic Transparent Device Based on Laplace’s Equation
MetadataShow full item record
Transparent device is deliberately-designed electromagnetic structure that is transparent to electromagnetic wave. It can be used as a radome structure which is capable of protection antenna inside without sacrificing its performance. In this paper, two-dimensional (2D) arbitrary shape electromagnetic transparent device is designed based on transformation optics. Laplace’s equation is adopted to construct the coordinate mapping between the original space and the transformed space. The design method is flexibly extended to three-dimensional (3D) case, which greatly enhances the applicability of transparent device. The protection of a horn antenna is taken as an example to show the effectiveness of the transparent device. Since the performance of the transparent device is independent on the inner antenna, it can be designed separately. Full-wave simulations are made to validate the results.
