1 Thermal Carpet Cloaking Achieved by Layered Metamaterial

Authors: Lien-Wen Chen, Bang-Shiuh Chen


We have devised a thermal carpet cloak theoretically and implemented in silicon using layered metamaterial. The layered metamaterial is composed of single crystalline silicon and its phononic crystal. The design is based on a coordinate transformation. We demonstrate the result with numerical simulation. Great cloaking performance is achieved as a thermal insulator is well hidden under the thermal carpet cloak. We also show that the thermal carpet cloak can even the temperature on irregular surface. Using thermal carpet cloak to manipulate the heat conduction is effective because of its low complexity.

Keywords: cloaking, Metamaterial, Heat Conduction, phononic crystal
