The work on the new invisibility cloak is being headed up by Xiang Zhang of the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at the University of California, Berkeley.

The U.S. government is big backers of this work, as they hope to use the technology for military purposes.

The two teams he is working over have released information in both the journals Nature and Science.

These new materials have been named metamaterials, and basically reverse the direction of light.
