To hide a metallic object from outside observers, we designed cloaking structures to manipulate the propagation path of the microwave at a specific frequency. Dielectric materials are used to realize the cloaking effect and their electromagnetic properties are evaluated to reduce the size of the cloaking structure as well as to take the loss effect into account. We used the structural design method based on the phase field method to control the electric field flow around a target object for cloaking. It is aimed to minimize the scattered electric field measured at the region located behind the target object for a normal incident wave in the X-band frequency range. Numerical examples are given to verify the suggested design process and its results.
