© 2018 IEEE.In this study, we propose a method based on graded-index medium in order to cloak scatterer objects. We use discretized Luneburg lenses as a graded-index medium and the proposed structure consists of four discretized Luneburg lenses, i.e., it is can be considered as a quadruple Luneburg lens system. Numerical investigations for directional cloaking are performed by using finite-difference time-domain methods. It is shown that an object can be cloaked inside the dark zone of created by Luneburg lenses and the proposed structure can provide cloaking at optical wavelengths.
