This paper reports the scattering of electromagnetic plane wave by annular metamaterials composed of concentric regular dielectric layers of infinite length. Interestingly, in certain frequency ranges, their scattering properties are similar to those of a perfect electric conductor cylinder, except that the tangential electric field on their surfaces does not vanish. Moreover, the frequency bands of total reflection spectra can be rigorously predicted using Floquet-Bloch theorem.
