Duke University creates perfect, centimeter-scale invisibility cloak

www.extremetech.com
Scientists at Duke University have created the first invisibility cloak that perfectly hides centimeter-scale objects. While invisibility cloaks have been created before, they have all reflected some of the incident light, ruining the illusion. In this case, the incident light is perfectly channeled around the object, creating perfect invisibility.There are...

Metamaterials and how to make something invisibile

gigaom.com
If you combine nanomaterials, lightwaves, and a supercomputer it’s possible to make an 18-centimeter tube invisible … to a microwave. Clearly this falls far short of the human hope of making an actual invisibility cloak, but it is an advancement in the science of cloaking objects, including airplanes or drones....

Mmm, invisibility donut... researchers try new takes on the "invisibility cloak"

gigaom.com
Duke University researchers who previously demonstrated invisibility cloaking in the lab have employed 3D printing to build their latest “cloak” – a disk that can block microwaves. The thickness of the donut-like disk roughly matches one wavelength, and its combination of air and dielectric (insulating, nonconducting) composite material deflects microwaves....

The End Of Car Crashes? New Lens-Free Camera Could Help Prevent Collisions

www.fastcompany.com
The breakthrough uses metamaterials, the same technology you'll find in Harry Potter's invisibility cloak. Researchers at Duke University--which has quite a track record in this field--have built a lens-free imaging system, which uses metamaterials to create the aperture needed to take a picture. Then, through math wizardry, an image...
