Background: To show the Back-Scattering efficiencies of nihility sphere become non-zero, scattering from metamaterial coated nihility sphere has been carried out in the presented work. Methods: The field phasors are expanded in terms of spherical wave vector function along with assumed scattering coefficients. Boundaries conditions are applied at each interface, i.e., free space- metamaterial coating and metamaterial coating-nihility sphere core. Results: Scattering coefficients are obtained by using boundary conditions at each interface. The scattering efficiencies are obtained in graphical form by varying both permittivity and permeability of metamaterial using MATHEMATICA software. Under some special conditions obtained results are compared with already published literature to show the correctness of present formulations. Conclusion: It is observed that Back-Scattering efficiencies of nihility sphere becomes non-zero when we introduce a metamaterial coating layer on it. It is also noticed that the scattering efficiencies are dependent on coating thickness as well as permittivity and permeability of metamaterials. Keywords: Nihility, Sphere, Metamaterial, Scattering, Forward-scattering efficiency, Back-scattering and Extinction efficiency
