Viewers of the Unseen

Viewers of the UnseenMicroscope power is restricted by diffraction limit­—anything smaller than about half the wavelength of the illuminating light can’t be seen. A University of Michigan team created a lens with metallic resonators that focuses microwaves 10 times more than diffraction limit allows,its sound unbelievable buts its true .These lenses could be used to make smaller, faster computer chips.

This is done using a new revolutionary material termed as "Metamaterial" the buzzword for today’s material scientist

Now what is it really??

These substances are tiny engineered structures from existing composite that are used to manipulate light, sound and radiowaves. Researchers are just starting to find applications for this research and may soon come out with products that can cloak military vehicles, make stronger microscopes and faster computer chips
