Abstract By extending the conventional scattering canceling theory, we propose a new design method for thermal cloaks based on isotropic materials. When the objects are covered by the designed cloaks, they will not disturb the temperature profile in the background zone. In addition, if different inhomogeneity coefficients are selected in the thermal cloak design process, these cloaks can manipulate the temperature gradient of the objects, i.e., make the temperature gradients higher, lower, or equal to the thermal gradient in the background zone. Therefore, thermal transparency, heat concentration or heat shield effects can be realized under a unified framework.
