The problem of minimizing the scattering from a multilayer cylindrical cloak is studied. Both TM and TE polarizations are considered. A two-stage optimization procedure using genetic algorithms and NEWUOA (new unconstrained optimization algorithm) is adopted for realizing the cloak using homogeneous isotropic layers. The layers are arranged such that they follow a repeated pattern of alternating DPS and DNG materials. The results show that a good level of invisibility can be realized using a reasonable number of layers. Maintaining the cloak performance over a finite range of frequencies without sacrificing the level of invisibility is achieved.
