Latest Cloak of invisibility Stories
University of Texas at Austin researchers have cloaked a three-dimensional object standing in free space for the first time.
A superlens would let you see a virus in a drop of blood and open the door to better and cheaper electronics. It might, says Durdu Guney, make ultra-high-resolution microscopes as commonplace as cameras in our cell phones.
Physicists working with the support from the US government said on Wednesday they had devised a “time cloak” that can make time disappear, albeit briefly.
Progress of metamaterials in nanotechnologies has made the invisibility cloak, a subject of mythology and science fiction, become reality: Light waves can be guided around an object to be hidden, in such a way that this object appears to be non-existent.
A team of researchers claim to have designed what is being called an antimagnetic cloak.
Researchers at Northwestern University have created a new kind of cloaking material that can render objects invisible in the terahertz range.
Optical cloaking devices that enable light to gracefully slip around a solid object were once strictly in the realm of science fiction.
Despite becoming a popular idea through science fiction, fantasy novels and films, a cloak that renders its wearer invisible is usually dismissed as impossible. However this does not dissuade some researchers from exploring the idea of it.
In this month's special issue of Physics World, which examines the science and applications of invisibility, Martin McCall and Paul Kinsler of Imperial College London describe a new type of invisibility cloak that does not just hide objects â€“ but events.
Scientists have developed a new device that makes objects invisible to sound waves.
