Scientists create invisible objects in the microwave range without metamaterial cloaking

Scientists create invisible objects in the microwave range without metamaterial cloaking | Jeff Morris | Scoop.it
Physicists have managed to make homogenous cylindrical objects completely invisible in the microwave range. Contrary to the now prevailing notion of invisibility that relies on metamaterial coatings, the scientists achieved the result using a homogenous object without any additional coating layers. The method is based on a new understanding of electromagnetic wave scattering.
