Abstract: In this paper, we propose a kind of illusion cloak that does not provide invisibility but instead changes the scattering of a coated target to that of a totally different one. Different from other illusion cloaks such as those based on “anti-object” or active sources, the proposed one is independent of the information of concealed targets or incident waves and can reshape the scattering of any targets. In addition, we also provide a general method to imitate arbitrary conductor line segments, as a special case of conductor reshaper. Electromagnetic (EM) simulations by a finite-element solver on detailed examples have been carried to validate the design.
