World's first 3-D acoustic cloaking device hides objects from sound
(Phys.org) —Using little more than a few perforated sheets of plastic and a staggering amount of number crunching, Duke engineers have demonstrated the world's first three-dimensional acoustic cloak. The ...
Research team scores a first with effective thermal camouflage
Engineers and scientists have been trying to discover the ultimate "cloaking" device – not just as a hat trick to make things invisible—but for its applications in defence technology. Now, a team from the NUS Department ...

Organic chemistry: Leading light waves astray
The development of structured synthetic materials with unusual electromagnetic properties, so-called metamaterials, promises to provide access to special physical effects of great technological interest. Metamaterials have ...
Metamaterials and transformation optics control light on a microchip
Using a combination of the new tools of metamaterials and transformation optics, engineers at Penn State University have developed designs for miniaturized optical devices that can be used in chip-based optical ...
Making a better invisibility cloak
The first functional "cloaking" device reported by Duke University electrical engineers in 2006 worked like a charm, but it wasn't perfect. Now a member of that laboratory has developed a new design that ...
MIT physicists suggest a means for creating an electron cloaking device
Combination of metamaterials and singular optics fueling research innovation

New 'metamaterial' practical for optical advances
(Phys.org) -- Researchers have taken a step toward overcoming a key obstacle in commercializing "hyperbolic metamaterials," structures that could bring optical advances including ultrapowerful microscopes, computers and solar ...
'Invisibility' cloak could protect buildings from earthquakes
University of Manchester mathematicians have developed the theory for a Harry Potter style 'cloaking' device which could protect buildings from earthquakes.
Pentagon-backed 'time cloak' stops the clock (Update)
Pentagon-supported physicists on Wednesday said they had devised a "time cloak" that briefly makes an event undetectable.
