Spectral cloaking could make objects invisible under realistic conditions

Phys.org  June 28, 2018 Most current cloaking devices can fully conceal the object of interest only when the object is illuminated with just one color of light. Researchers in Canada propose a new conceptual approach enabling the realization of full-field broadband invisibility. This involves a customized and reversible redistribution of the illumination frequency content, allowing the wave to propagate through the object of interest while preventing any interaction between the wave and the object. They demonstrated the concealment of a broadband optical filter from detection with a phase-coherent light pulse of 500 GHz bandwidth, showing full restoration of the complex […]
