Scientists move 1 step closer to creating an invisibility cloak
London UK (SPX) Jul 19, 2016
Scientists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have made an object disappear by using a composite material with nano-size particles that can enhance specific properties on the object's surface. Researchers from QMUL's School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, worked with UK industry to demonstrate for the first time a practical cloaking device that allows curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves. While the research might not lead to the invisibility cloak ma ... read more
