Cloaking spray in development at U-M | MconneX | MichEpedia | April 1st 2014

April 4, 2014

A cloaking paint developed by Michigan Engineers sprays on clear and dries invisible. Once dry, it guides light around an object, causing it to become transparent. As nanotechnology blurs the line between science and science fiction, Christoph Ellison has developed a paint that guides rays of light around an object. Still in development, the distortions allow the outline of the object to be seen, preventing true invisibility.

About the Professor: Christoph Ellison is an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan College of Engineering (http://www.engin.umich.edu/). His research at the Center for Nano-optics includes nano-colloids, nano-gels, negative index materials and superlensing.
