Science reveals secrets of invisibility

Abstract:
The key to that possibility is the development of increasingly complex metamaterials -- manmade composites engineered on a nano scale with properties entirely different to anything found in nature. "The essential idea is that all you have to do is make things smaller. Visible light has a significantly smaller wavelength than microwaves or radio waves but you could take the same building blocks and make them very small. Thanks to nanotechnology there is a chance that can be done."
