This week on the Daily Beat: We take a look at how different disciplines form bonds to unite and creatively collaborate.
Today on the Daily Beat, Thursday October 15, 2015: Listen to Zi Jing Wong speak about the break-through research at UC Berkeley in creating a scalable invisibility cloak. At the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) at Berkeley, Wong and his team created an invisibility cloak can be used to conceal an object from view by guiding light around it. Most cloaks developed so far have bulky structures that are difficult to scale up for hiding large objects. To design a thin invisibility cloak that can be wrapped around an object such as a sheet or skin, Ni et al. designed a two-dimensional meta-material surface. Such flexible, highly reflective materials could be manufactured at large scale to hide large objects.
