Among the different cloaking applications proposed in the literature, the antenna framework has emerged as one of the most fruitful and mature field. In particular, mantle cloaking approach has proven to be a powerful tool for enabling unprecedented possibilities in antenna design. Here, we provide a review of the most significant works in the field of electromagnetic invisibility for antenna applications, demonstrating the versatility of cloaking metasurfaces in antenna scenarios. We also discuss our recent results and investigations on the design of advanced cloaking metasurfaces equipped with electronic components and circuits and able enriching the antenna intelligence.
Key words: Metasurfaces / cloaking / antennas / intelligent / cognitive / self-adaptive
