A zero index metamaterial (ZIM) can be utilized to block wave (super-reflection) or conceal objects completely (cloaking). The "super-reflection" device can be realized by a Mu zero (Epsilon zero) metamaterial with a perfect electric (magnetic) conductor inclusion of arbitrary shape and size for a transverse electric (magnetic) incident wave. In contrast, a Mu zero (Epsilon zero) metamaterial with a perfect magnetic (electric) conductor inclusion for a transverse electric (magnetic) incident wave can be used to conceal objects of arbitrary shape. The underlying physics here is determined by the intrinsic properties of the ZIM.
