  1. Israeli Researchers Successfully Hide Optical Chip Under ‘Cloak Of Invisibility’
    11/16/2017

    Scientists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) are proposing a new method to obscure an optical chip by bending light around the object. This could be achieved by manipulating waves in the near field region (such as surface plasmons) of a metamaterial surface (a metasurface) on an integrated photonic structure.
