We discuss the concept of infrared cloaking using nanosphere dispersed liquid crystal (NDLC) matematerial in cylindrical geometry for TM polarization. The system consists of six layers of NDLC with different values of ordinary refractive index. Finite element calculations (COMSOL Multiphysics) show that scattering from the hidden object is strongly limited in the presence of the cloak.
