A design method is proposed to minimize the scattering cross section(SCS) of the electromagnetic cloak based on the quasi-conformal mapping. Often times in such cloaking structures, parts that require refractive index below one are approximated with free space because of the difficulty involved with realization. In this process, preformance degradation is inevitable. In this work, the size of the cloak is optimized to compensate for the deterioration, and thus to minimize the scattering cross section of a diamond shaped conductor. Proposed cloak is fabricated using a 3D printer, and verified by measuring the cloaking performance of a diamond shaped aluminum target.
