Transformation optics (or transformation electromagnetics) is used in the control of the path of electromagnetic waves, relevant to the field of metamaterial engineering technology.
This book presents the theoretical tools which define transformation optics. The authors address the origin of the concept by analyzing Fermat’s principle and discuss the two main methods of transformation that allow the design of devices.
Basic approaches and methods to design practical applications of transformation optics concepts are presented for those in the field of engineering. These provide readers with the whole process of designing a device based on transformation optics, from theoretical formulations to implementation and subsequent experimental validation.
The authors demonstrate that transformation optics is not only a powerful theoretical way to design unbelievable and novel devices such as invisibility cloaks, but also a realization tool of microwave devices with unusual properties that are difficult to achieve with conventional methods. The design of anisotropic materials used in these applications is especially focused upon.


1. Transformation Optics Concept: Definition and Tools.
2. Coordinate Transformation Concept: Transformation of Electromagnetic Sources.
3. Space Transformation Concept: Controlling the Path of Electromagnetic Waves.
