Metamaterials provide unprecedented freedom and flexibility in the creation of new structures, which control electromagnetic wave propagation in very unusual ways. Very recently various theoretical designs for an electromagnetic cloak were suggested and an experimental realization of a partial cloak operating in a two-dimensional cylindrical geometry were reported in the microwave frequency range. We report on an experimental two-dimensional reduced visibility structure that approximates the distribution of the radial component of the dielectric permittivity necessary to achieve nonmagnetic cloaking in the visible frequency range.
