Invisibility Shields One Step Closer With New Metamaterials That Bend Light Backwards


Subject:
Physics , Optics

Description:
This August 2008 article describes how "scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have for the first time engineered 3-D materials that can reverse the natural direction of visible and near-infrared light, a development that could help form the basis for higher resolution optical imaging, nanocircuits for high-powered computers, and ... cloaking devices that could render objects invisible to the human eye." Includes illustrations. From University of California, Berkeley, News.
