Abstract


In this invited talk, we will present our preliminary study of a virtual hole and a broadband acoustic collimator, by combination of the concept of complimentary media with transformational acoustics. Such effect is exemplified by a segmental defect in the original cloak, which appears as if a dipole scatterer was under the acoustic imager. The potential application of such novel device concept in underwater communication and medical ultrasound will be also discussed.
