Electromagnetic scattering properties of metamaterial cylinders due to a line source are studied by a multilayer algorithm based on eigenfunctional expansion. Closed forms of electric and magnetic fields are formulated. Both the fields inside the cylinder and field in outer space are plotted for different sizes of the cylinder. The focusing phenomena and the wave propagation in the presence of metamaterial cylinders are investigated and shown. Electromagnetic field distributions are presented for subwavelength metamaterial cylinders and cylinders fabricated by magnetoelectric materials, and resonant scattering and focusing properties are reported. Special designs of scatterer cloaking are proposed and calculated by multilayer algorithm which can reduce scattering cross sections.
