Abstract


We consider cloaking of a slab object in scalar wave theory within the first-order Born approximation. We show that such cloaking is not possible for arbitrary fields but it is for self imaging fields. Furthermore, the scattering potential of the cloak slab depends on that of the object slab as well as on the structure of the incident field. The method of object dependent cloaking in weak scattering could have a number of practical applications.
