Transformation Electrics: Cloaking and Rotating Electric Current
Journal article, 2014

Transformation optics provides great versatility for precisely manipulating electromagnetic waves. It has been extended to other fields including acoustics, thermotics, and electrics. Taking advantage of the transformation electrics method, we demonstrate that the square-shaped cloak can guide electric current around the cloaked region smoothly without perturbing the exterior electric current. And the cylindrical rotator can rotate the electric current. Inside the enclosed domain of the rotator, the electric current from the outside will appear as if it is coming from a different angle. Finally, the related experimental realizations and potential applications are also discussed.
