Active Thermal Cloaking and Mimicking

Abstract : We present an active cloaking method for the parabolic heat (and mass or light diffusion) equation that can hide both objects and sources. By active we mean that it relies on designing monopole and dipole heat source distributions on the boundary of the region to be cloaked. The same technique can be used to make a source or an object look like a different one to an observer outside the cloaked region, from the perspective of thermal measurements. Our results assume a homogeneous isotropic bulk medium and require knowledge of the source to cloak or mimic, but are in most cases independent of the object to cloak.
