The Plight of `I Am'
To conclude this discussion, it should be underlined that, in absolute value, scattering is larger for normal incidence in the uncloaked scenario (ǫc = ǫ0 in the figure), as expected, due to the larger Ez component.
Plasmonic Cloaking of Cylinders: Finite Length, Oblique Illumination and Cross-Polarization Coupling
As anticipated above, this configuration gives much weaker scattering in the uncloaked scenario (µc = µ0 ), due to its small size and lack of dielectric contrast with the background.
Plasmonic Cloaking of Cylinders: Finite Length, Oblique Illumination and Cross-Polarization Coupling
Cs is the scattering efficiency from Eq. (2), and the superscript 0 represents the uncloaked case, calculated with Eqs. (1-4), in the limit ac → a and ǫc → ǫ.
