Metamaterials have given rise to envisioning the design and engineering of materials through which light would be directed by design. The purpose of this thesis is to explore the idea of using transformational optics through the use of metamaterials as a way of defending against an incident electromagnetic beam. The theoretical and realistic viability of two possible proposed material solutions will be tested, through the use of the COMSOL Multiphysics software package.
