Lynn Yarris, Berkeley Lab There’s a new wave of sound on the horizon carrying with it a broad scope of tantalizing potential applications, including advanced ultrasonic imaging and therapy, and acoustic cloaking, levitation and particle manipulation. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a technique for generating acoustic bottles in open air that can bend the paths of sound waves along prescribed...

Breakthrough In Creating Invisibility Cloaks
2014-04-01 11:09:29

University of Central Florida Controlling and bending light around an object so it appears invisible to the naked eye is the theory behind fictional invisibility cloaks. It may seem easy in Hollywood movies, but is hard to create in real life because no material in nature has the properties necessary to bend light in such a way. Scientists have managed to create artificial nanostructures that can do the job, called metamaterials. But the challenge has been making enough of the material...

A 3D Acoustic Cloak That Hides Objects From Sound
2014-03-12 12:14:17

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Engineers at Duke University have demonstrated the world’s first three-dimensional acoustic cloaking device. The scientists reported in the journal Nature Materials that they have created a new device that reroutes sound waves to create the impression that the cloak and whatever it covers is not there. This technology could one day be used by the US Navy as a way to avoid sonar detection. According to the researchers, the acoustic...

Research Helps Lay Out Theory For Metamaterials That Act As Analog Computer
2014-01-10 09:54:04

[ Watch The Video: Explaining Metamaterials ] University of Pennsylvania The field of metamaterials has produced structures with unprecedented abilities, including flat lenses, invisibility cloaks and even optical "metatronic" devices that can manipulate light in the way electronic circuitry manipulates the flow of electrons. Now, the birthplace of the digital computer, ENIAC, is using this technology in the rebirth of analog computing. A study by researchers at the University...

With the emergence of metamaterials and transformation optics in the past few years, invisibility has become a scientific possibility that has attracted sustainable research interest. Recently, a review paper, entitled "Invisibility cloak from forward design to inverse design", published in SCIENCE CHINA Information Sciences, 2013, Vol. 56, reviewed design methodologies and experimental developments of the invisibility cloak from a practical perspective. The recent transition from a forward...

Battery-Powered Cloaking Device In The Works At U Texas
2013-12-19 08:09:17

Gerard LeBlond for redorbit.com - Your Universe Online The first battery-powered cloaking device is being designed by researchers at the University of Texas. The use of an external source of power will greatly expand its bandwidth of operation. Andrea Alu is the associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Cockrell School of Engineering in Austin, Texas. He and his team have proposed the design of a cloaking device (active cloak) powered by a...

Invisibility Cloak Chinese

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The Chinese government is funding research projects in an attempt to create the world’s first invisibility cloak. The government has funded at least 40 research teams over the past three years to develop something that has only been seen in movies like Harry Potter. According to a report by the South China Morning Post, scientists working on the project said Beijing believes the technology could lead to wider technological...
