Community News - Thermal Cloaking

Posted on February 12, 2014

Invisibility cloaks attract the attention and capture the imagination. The theory behind invisbility cloaks applies to waves; light is the area that gets most publicity, but other type of waves can be treated in the same way, including siesmic waves and acoustic waves.

Thermal applications have also been proposed. As pointed out by Andrea Alù, in a recent viewpoint for Physics, "Heat is governed by diffusion and therefore does not propagate in wavelike form..." Thermal cloaks have been experimentally demonstrated, including two thin 3D cloaks by Han et al. and Xu et al. Hence, this may help extend "transformation optics" into other areas where diffusion is significant, such as "electricity, tomography, or chemical diffusion".

I wouldn't be too woirred. We'll build like four, and call it an army. Like when we had one sneaky submarine out doing excersises with the USS Ronald Reagan. That is to say 20% of our submarine flotilla.
