Movie S1
Full parameter set cloak simulation as in Fig. 4A. The full complex data set was obtained through finite element-based simulation. This animation demonstrates the operation of a cloak with a full constitutive parameter implementation, with the parameters controlled in both the radial and circumferential directions. Streamlines computed from the simulation results were overlaid.

Movie S2
Reduced parameter set cloak simulation as in Fig. 4B. The full complex data set was obtained through finite element-based simulation. Streamlines computed from the simulation results were overlaid.

Movie S3
Measured copper cylinder scattering as in Fig. 4C. Using the mapping system and measurement procedure described in the text, the full complex electric field was measured over and around the uncloaked copper cylinder in order to observe the scattering.

Movie S4
Measured cloaking of the copper cylinder as in Fig. 4D. Using the mapping system and measurement procedure described in the text, the full complex electric field was measured around and within the cloak containing the copper cylinder to demonstrate the scattering reduction with the addition of the cloak.

Movie S5
Free space plane wave as in fig. S2. The full complex electric field was measured with an empty mapping chamber. This yields a full visualization of the microwave field incident on the samples.
