A general conformal transformation method (CTM) is proposed to construct the conformal mapping between two irregular geometries. In order to find the material parameters corresponding to the conformal transformation between two irregular geometries, two polygons are utilized to approximate the two irregular geometries, and an intermediate geometry is used to connect the mapping relations between the two polygons. Based on these manipulations, the approximate material parameters for TE and TM waves are finally obtained by calculating the Schwarz-Christoffel (SC) mappings. To demonstrate the validity of the method, a phase modulator and a plane focal surface Luneburg lens are designed and simulated by the finite element method. The results show that the conformal transformation can be expanded to the cases that the transformed objects are with irregular geometries.
