One step closer to an invisibility cloak

16 June 2011

Using 3D photonic crystals of their own design, researchers at the University of Twente’s MESA+ research institute have achieved a world first, revealing the signature of a photonic band gap. This is one of the holy grails of physics. Their study brings the development of an invisibility cloak - as well as more efficient lasers, LEDs and solar cells - a step closer. The results of the study will soon be published in Physical Review B, a leading American scientific journal.
