Tailored Flexible Illusion Coatings Hide Objects from Detection

October 13, 2014 10:24 am | by A'ndrea Elyse Messer, Penn State | Comments

The researchers take the object they want cloaked and surround it with a spacer, either air or foam. They then apply the ultrathin layer of dielectric with copper patterning designed for the wavelengths they wish to cloak. In this way, antennae and sensors could be made invisible or deceptive to remote inspection...
