The paper Physical Realization Of Elastic Cloaking With A Polar Material was recently accepted to Physical Review Letters (PRL). In this paper, Wan Shou and Beichen Li collaborated with researchers at University of Missouri and Dalian University of Technology to propose a novel elastic cloak by designing and fabricating a new class of polar materials with a distribution of body torque that exhibits asymmetric stresses. The work sets a precedent in the field of transformation elasticity and should find applications in mechanical stress shielding and stealth technologies.
