We theoretically explore a type of bifunctional cloak possessing both electrical and thermal cloaking functionality. We employ a composite material to design the cloak shell. By using effective medium theory, the effective electrical and thermal conductivities of the composite material should meet the perfect conductivity profile calculated from the coordinate transformation approach. In the design, we choose nonspherical nanoparticles with appropriate electrical and thermal conductivities, shape aspects, and volume fractions. Furthermore, finite element simulations are performed to verify the properties of such bifunctional cloaks.
