See below some of the many articles related to our work on cloaking. It could be that our 2006 paper On the cloaking effects associated with anomalous localized resonance (submitted in October 2005) was the first to introduce the word "cloaking" into the scientific literature, outside computer science. With 12,815 downloads our paper Quasistatic cloaking of two-dimensional polarizable discrete systems by anomalous resonance was the most downloaded paper in 2007 amongst all 12 journals of the Optical Society of America.
