Abstract

Nanosphere dispersed liquid crystal metamaterial is a tunable system for which external electrostatic field, anchoring forces or temperature influence strongly the character of an inhomogeneous spatial distribution of an effective refractive index. Those features make this system a promising candidate for a design of a controlled molding of light flow and, in particular, for a design of an invisibility cloak.We review briefly recent results related to a potential cloak applications on the basis of this system and discuss further extensions of the model.
