Acoustic Metasurfaces

Metasurface carpet cloaking for audible acoustics 

Acoustic carpet cloaking by using a metasurface made of graded Helmholtz resonators is characterized experimentally. This thin metasurface, placed over the object to hide, is designed such that the reflection phase shifts of the resonators at the resonance frequency are tuned to compensate the shape of the object to cloak. Experimental as well as numerical results show the efficiency of the cloak at the resonance frequency. The reflection of a short pulse is also inspected  to characterize  the broadband character of the cloak.
