Researchers at Iowa State University have developed a flexible radar-concealment material that reportedly outperforms conventional stealth technologies in aircraft and other applications and could even be used to make an invisibility cloak.  The tunable material is described as a “meta-skin” because its properties are akin to those of meta-materials, engineered composites with properties that are not found in nature.  The meta-skin is a multilayer structure of ...
