Researchers in America have developed 25,000 invisibility cloaks.
These cloaks are not like the cloaks in the infamous Harry Potter movies. Each cloak is tiny and it’s diameter measures only 30 micrometers. All of the cloaks are laid out on a gold sheet in a uniform type pattern.
Because each one of the cloaks has a microlens around itself that bends light a portion of the gold sheet in the middle is hidden.
The cloaks may be beneficial by having the ability to slow down or stop light which will create a “trapped rainbow”.
This can be beneficial by allowing scientists to check for genetic conditions in someone’s DNA just one time rather than having to perform a test for every condition.
Scientists hope that these 25,000 invisibility cloaks will lend themselves to even more useful discoveries although an invisibility cloak to make a person invisible is highly unlikely.
