CrunchGear: We all have microwaves, and we all use them from time to time, and we all are baffled now and again by how one spot on the nachos can be practically vaporizing while another is as cold as death. This video shows a little bit of what’s going on in there, and it’s not just a bunch of wavy lines, the way I usually see microwaves explained.
Microwaves have basically become a way of life for many of us, so it makes sense that Amazon would find its way into the microwave market.
Physicists have managed to make homogenous cylindrical objects completely invisible in the microwave range. Contrary to the now prevailing notion of invisibility that relies on metamaterial coatings, the scientists achieved the result using a homogenous object without any additional coating layers. The method is based on a new understanding of electromagnetic wave scattering.
