The synthesis of non-magnetic 2D dielectric cloaks as proper solutions of an inverse scattering problem is addressed in this paper. Adopting the relevant integral formulation governing the scattering phenomena, analytic and numerical approaches are exploited to provide new insights on how frequency and direction of arrival of the incoming wave may influence the cloaking mechanism in terms of permittivity distribution within the cover region. In quasi-static (subwavelength) regime a solution is analytically derived in terms of homogeneous artificial dielectric cover with ε < ε 0, which is found to be a necessary and sufficient condition for achieving omnidirectional cloaking. On the other hand, beyond quasi-static regime, the cloaking problem is addressed as an optimization task looking for only natural dielectric coatings with ε > ε 0 able to hide the object for a given number of directions of the incident field. Simulated results confirm the validity of both analytic and numerical methodologies and allow to estimate effective bandwidths both in terms of frequency range and direction of arrival of the impinging field.
