Imagine a material that can become invisible to light or sound by bending the waves… a functional cloaking device. Welcome to a whole new world! Around the world people are trying to understand the physical properties of metamaterials consisting of selected regimented quantum dot super lattices with extraordinary optical, thermal, electrical, and Seebeck properties and use this knowledge to address the present and future needs. What are metamaterials? Imagine a material that can become invisible to light or sound by bending the waves… a functional cloaking device.
