The desert mirages under water

The desert mirages under water

On the one hand, it looks like something special in the style of James Bond, but, on the other hand, resembles a high-quality masking system configured HALO. Researchers working at the Texas Institute, which is located in Dallas, could use extraordinary properties of carbon nanotubes in order to follow a mirage. To do this, the researchers made a special cloak, which can hide all sorts of things with ordinary electronic switch lever pressing.

Important to note that the latest technology at the present time can not be integrated into the Aston Martin as a greater effect can be achieved only under water. Yet, the invisibility cloak can be use in different situations and do not necessarily use it exclusively in the science lab.

The desert mirages under water

Work invisibility cloak based on specific effect of the refraction of light rays. Specifically, this effect becomes a prerequisite of mirages in the desert. Called he boundary air as water whose temperature should be substantially different because the refractive index of the light can be similar, as required under normal circumstances. In the end, the reflected light enters the human eye, but does not go into the surrounding space, as it should be. In this regard, people usually behold the waters in the wilderness, which does not exist. In addition, a similar effect can not explain any of mirages. Behold the people those things which in reality does not exist, because they are only a reflection of the sky. Due to the fact that it is located near the earth's surface and is blue in color, one can imagine that he sees water in the desert, because in these circumstances, it is most in need of drink.

Given effect You can watch this video, which below. If the use of conductive carbon nanotubes, in which wall thickness as the thickness of 1 atom. Such carbon nanotubes are surface 1st leaf which made of special transparent material. This allows for a small period of time to heat the water near the surface of the sheet of transparent material to that of the highest temperature, what will be needed. Due to the difference in water temperature there is a difference in the refractive indices, effect Mirage hiding the thing that is on the back of this sheet. At the same time, it takes a bit of time.
