Majid Gharghi and Chris Gladden study the ‘carpet cloak’ they helped develop, which makes objects invisible to the human eye by controlling how light bends.

Using optics to manipulate the way light bends when it hits an object, a team of UC Berkeley researchers has developed a cloak to create the illusion of invisibility — a technology that may one day also be used to manipulate solar light energy. In a paper published on July
