For more than a decade, scientists have not abandoned attempts to create an invisibility cloak. Another was undertaken by researchers at the University of California (Irvine). This time the tip came from nature itself. In particular, scientists interested in squid, changing skin color, depending on various situations, is not worse than chameleons.
As it turned out, squid able to influence pigmentation, increasing or compressing the volume of skin cells. Scientists managed to reproduce this process. To do this, they applied an impregnation of aluminum to the surface of the elastic polymer. At the time when aluminum is expanded, it reflects more infrared light. If the aluminum points are squeezed, then the fabric becomes invisible to infrared observation devices.
Using this technology, scientists could create a camouflage that effectively hides the object from infrared cameras.js.src = “&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
