Abstract: Transformation Optics (TO), aka Transformation EM, is a relatively new field, which has engendered a tremendous level of interest and curiosity among researches in Optics and Microwaves, because it offers a novel approach to designing cloaks, superlenses and directive antennas.
The paper will begin by posing some questions which we typically run across when applying the TO to design cloaks and lenses. They are: a) Does the TO require both [epsilon] and [mu], or could a TO-designed cloak be [epsilon]-only or [mu]-only type? b) Can we design TO-based cloaks with naturally available materials, or must we use Metamaterials?
