Abstract
We recently showed how to construct omni-directional ray-optical transformation-optics devices out of ideal thin lenses. These devices can be seen as theoretical generalisations of the paraxial, four-lens, “Rochester cloak”. Here we investigate the practical realisability of such devices. We use ray-tracing simulations to compare combinations of skew lenses of different types, including ideal lenses and phase holograms of lenses.
