EU invisibility cloak mystery deepens

Europe’s boffins, including a few at Imperial College, have found a way to alter light waves electronically to hide a 3D object. At the moment the object has to be smaller than a micrometer, but hey, it’s a start.
The researchers say the discovery has applications in thin-film optical isolators, electro-optic modulators, optical switching, and (nuclear instrument module) NIM-based “perfect lenses” in the infrared, and possibly in the visible spectrum.
Downtime expects “The dog ate my homework” to change to “I left my homework next to the NIM and I couldn’t find it again.”
