According to the recent study Invisibility Cloaking Scheme by Evanescent Distortion on Composite Plasmonic Waveguides with Si Nano-Spacer? published in Nature Scientific Reports?, the researchers conceived a new method that deflects and scatters light away from a “cloaking” chip surface so it is not detected.
An operational cloaking chip can be an extension of the basic technologies such as radar-absorbing dark paint used on stealth aircraft, local optical camouflage, surface cooling to minimize electromagnetic infrared emissions, or electromagnetic wave scattering.
“These results open the door to new integrated photonic devices, harnessing electromagnetic fields of light at nanoscale for a variety of applications from on-chip optical devices to all-optical processing,” says Dr. Alina Karabchevsky (pictured left), head of BGU’s Light-o?n-a-Chip Group and a member of BGU’s Unit of Electro-Optical Engineering and the Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology. “We showed that it is possible to bend the light around an object located on the cloak on an optical chip. The light does not interact with the object, thus resulting in the object’s invisibility.”
The next step is for researchers to overcome the significant challenge of developing a prototype.
