Basing on the transformation optics, we propose a kind of transformation method of compressing or stretching. With the method, we propose a design of transparent radome for different structures. The electromagnetic (EM) waves inside or outside the radome can transmit through the structure without any reflection. Numerical simulations confirm the function of the radome structures.
