Abstract
Description
We propose a new class of resonant electromagnetic structures, and study their response to free-space illumination. The structures consist of partial cylindrical shells that have cloaking material properties proposed by Pendry et al. These metamaterial shells have apertures that allow the propagation of incident irradiation into an interior resonant cavity. We use full wave time-harmonic analysis to study the field distribution inside the cavity, and show that an analogue of Whispering Gallery Modes (WGMs) can be efficiently excited via free-space illumination.
