WASHINGTON (AP) - Scientists say they are a step closer to
developing materials that could render people and objects
invisible.
Researchers have demonstrated for the first time they were able
to cloak three-dimensional objects using artificially engineered
materials that redirect light around the objects.
Previously, they only have been able to cloak very thin
two-dimensional objects.
The findings, by scientists at the University of California,
Berkeley, are to be released later this week in the journals Nature
and Science.
The new work moves scientists a step closer to hiding people and
objects from visible light, which could have broad applications,
including military ones.
