recently proposed solutions for invisibility and cloaking using
metamaterials, metasurfaces, graphene and/or plasmonic materials in
different spectral ranges are reviewed and highlighted. The focus is
primarily on scattering-cancellation approaches, describing material
challenges, venues and opportunities for the plasmonic and the mantle
cloaking techniques, applied to various frequency windows and devices.
Analogies, potentials and relevant opportunities of these concepts are
discussed, their potential realization and the underlying technology
required to verify these phenomena are reviewed with an emphasis on the
material aspects involved. Finally, these solutions are compared with
other popular cloaking techniques.
