Latest Cloak of invisibility Stories
Researchers at Northwestern University have created a new kind of cloaking material that can render objects invisible in the terahertz range.
Optical cloaking approach described in Optics Express shows potential for myriad futuristic applications.
A very simple bench-top technique that uses the force of acoustical waves to create a variety of 3D structures will benefit the rapidly expanding field of metamaterials and their myriad applicationsâ€”including "invisibility cloaks."
With NSF support, Elena Semouchkina and colleagues are experimenting with ways of using magnetic resonance to capture rays of visible light and route them around objects, rendering those objects invisible to the human eye.
Researchers in Britain and Denmark have unveiled an â€˜invisibility cloakâ€™ that uses a common crystalline material known as calcite, which works by sending its two "polarizations" of light in different directions.
Researchers are developing a new class of "plasmonic metamaterials" as potential building blocks for advanced optical technologies, including ultrapowerful microscopes and computers, improved solar cells, and a possible invisibility cloak.
In one University of Illinois lab, invisibility is a matter of now you hear it, now you donâ€™t.

Researchers at the University of St Andrews have devised a material, comprised solely of tiny atoms that can interact with light, which brings the possible invention of an invisibility cloak one step closer to becoming a reality.
Researchers at the Tufts University School of Engineering and Boston University have fabricated and characterized the first large area metamaterial structures patterned on implantable, bio-compatible silk substrates.
