Cylindrical and spherical fluid Eaton lenses have been analyzed by wave optics for the particular case of monochromatic plane incident radiation.

The farfield scattered radiation patterns indicate a nearly even splitting of scattered energy between forward and backscatter corresponding to shadow forming and reflected radiation respectively. The total scattering cross sections for ϱ-c boundary matched Eaton lenses approach, in an oscillatory manner, a value equal to approximately twice the projected area. Thus at high frequencies the Eaton lenses behave as plane mirrors at normal incidence. The cylindrical Eaton lens forms a more or less definite shadow at moderate frequencies while the shadow for the corresponding spherical lens contains a pronounced Fresnel bright spot.
