Abstract or project description

This project is focused on the Scientific Theory of Invisibility Cloaking. Invisibility Cloaking is based on the principles of Optics, a field in Physics that studies light and its physical properties. This project helps you understand the use of transformation optics and metamaterials to create optical devices for hiding objects and making them invisible. You must guide light rays around an object to make it invisible to the naked eye. In explaining the Theory of Invisibility Cloaking, I have also explained the refractive property of light, Snell’s Law, Fermat’s Principle, Maxwell's equations, and cloaking devices.
