Electromagnetic cloaking refers to the ability to prevent an object from scattering an incident electromagnetic field. This has been accomplished in recent works by specially designed materials. Another way of cloaking using sources has been known in the acoustics community. In this letter, we introduce a prescription for canceling the electromagnetic scattering of an object by using an array of sources. By using the equivalence principle, we show that by superimposing magnetic and electric surface current densities at the boundary of an object, the scattered fields from that object can be canceled. These magnetic and electric surface currents can be discretized into electric and magnetic dipoles that are physically implementable by straight and loop wire antennas. Finally, we confirm our results using numerical simulations.
