Abstract

Transformation optics offers a procedure to design the structures of metamaterials to find the material parameters needed in various applications. However, a methodology of a transformation optics is too complicated. To help users who are beginning to study metamaterials and transformation optics, a transformation optical user-friendly interface is developed. The interface is implemented based on the free-form touch transformation. By combining various transformation templates, a fully arbitrary transformation can be realized. Transformation templates are created by basic functions. The interface provides both the input method as well as the real-time visualization of the space. The program uses model-view-controller architecture. Three examples from the touch interface are verified by the FDFD simulation.
