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 ...

Two independent teams build heat cloaking device

(Phys.org) —Two teams, both in Singapore have created two different types of thermal cloaking devices. In their papers, both published in Physical Review Letters, the teams describe how they went about creating their devices ...

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 ...

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 ties up one of the ...
