    Abstract:
    © 2014 Springer-Verlag London. All rights are reserved. Transformation optical design is generally complicated by the requirement for highly anisotropic and inhomogeneous constituent materials. Quasi-conformal mappings have appeared as an attractive subset of the general transformation optics method because they only require isotropic, dielectric-only materials. In this chapter, we examine the quasi-conformal method as it applies to transformation optics and show that while it does significantly ease the burden of material design and fabrication, it may also create severely aberrant behavior unless caution is taken. We also show how to extend the method to three dimensions, and examine the performance of an optic designed with the quasi-conformal method.
