'Cloaking' device uses ordinary lenses to hide objects across continuous range of angles
Inspired perhaps by Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, scientists have recently developed several ways—some simple and some involving new technologies—to hide objects from view. The latest effort, developed ...
Nearly perfect, ultrathin invisibility cloak could have wide practical applications
Magnetic shell provides unprecedented control of magnetic fields
Invisibility cloak hides parts of objects, leaves other parts visible
Physicists describe how to make time-reversed light pulses
Thin, active invisibility cloak demonstrated for first time
(Phys.org) —Invisibility cloaking is no longer the stuff of science fiction: two researchers in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering have demonstrated an effective invisibility ...
Invisibility carpet cloak can hide objects from visible light
Do-it-yourself invisibility with 3-D printing
Seven years ago, Duke University engineers demonstrated the first working invisibility cloak in complex laboratory experiments. Now it appears creating a simple cloak has become a lot simpler.
Invisibility cloak that generates virtual images gets closer to realization
Researchers design more reliable invisibility cloak
'Metascreen' forms ultra-thin invisibility cloak
(Phys.org) —Up until now, the invisibility cloaks put forward by scientists have been fairly bulky contraptions – an obvious flaw for those interested in Harry Potter-style applications.
How to prevent earthquake damage: make buildings invisible
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 ...
Researchers build optical invisibility cloak for a diffusive medium
Real invisibility cloaks are rather complex and work in certain situations only. The laws of physics prevent an optical invisibility cloak from making objects in air invisible for any directions, colors, ...
