ABSTRACT
This article reports that a team of researchers at Duke University in North Carolina has successfully tested a cloak of invisibility. The concept works by deflecting microwaves around an object and restoring them on the other side, as if they had passed through empty space. The cloak consists of 10 fibre-glass rings covered with copper elements. One scientist involved, Professor John Pendry, commented that, in the future, a metamaterial cloak might exist to wrap around a fighter plane or tank.
