INVISIBILITY CLOAKS, METAMATERIAL CRYSTALS, AND PLASMA SHEATHS
I figured that while we're on the subject of strange science and technology this week we might as well talk about another subject near and dear to my inclination for high octane speculation: invisibility. I've written a whole book on the subject in connection to the Philadelphia Experiment (Secrets of the Unified Field: The Philadelphia Experiment, the Nazi Bell, and the Discarded Theory), and on occasion I've blogged about the subject. It's a subject that has captured the imaginations of others as well, as a cursory glance at the book titles on the subject will attest. (For example, see Ulf Leonhardt's and Thomas Philbin's Geometry and Light: The Science of Invisibility, and for a thoroughly entertaining if not perplexing read, Robert Guffey's Chameleo: A Strange but True Story of Invisible Spies, Heroin Addiction, and Homeland Security). Well, this intriguing article was spotted by V.T.:
There's something in this article that grabbed my attention, and for readers of my Giza Death Star trilogy of books, or of its recent updated version of the weapon hypothesis in The Giza Death Star Revisited, the following weird properties of these emerging technologies of metamaterial crystals will sound very familiar:
The invisibility to radar, which is microwave-to-radio wavelength electromagnetic radiation, might have been the first step, but recent developments in metamaterials have extended this even further, bending light around an object and rendering it truly undetectable. Perhaps the critical advance that could finally bring an invisibility cloak to reality occurred in 2018, in a novel material called a broadband achromatic metalens. For the first time, it rendered an object undetectable across the entire visible light spectrum. The fusion of this technology with metamaterial cloaking — another recent nanotechnology advance — could finally enable the first visible-light cloaking device.
One application would be a nano-technology called a metalens, which would in turn provide an essential step toward optical invisibility metamaterials:
Immediately, this allows for the development of a cheaper, lighter, more effective lens. As one of the paper’s authors, Wei Ting Chen, explains:
“By combining two nanofins into one element, we can tune the speed of light in the nanostructured material, to ensure that all wavelengths in the visible are focused in the same spot, using a single metalens. This dramatically reduces thickness and design complexity compared to composite standard achromatic lenses.”
While the earliest marketable applications of these metalenses should soon include cameras, VR devices, microscopes, and other medicinal and augmentative technologies, a longer-term fusion of the metalens/nanofin concept with metamaterials could be exactly the holy grail of technological combinations that a real-life cloaking device would require.
The biggest challenge facing the construction of a real-life invisibility cloak has been the incorporation of a large variety of wavelengths, as the cloak’s material must vary from point-to-point to bend (and then unbend) the light by the proper amount. While metamaterials have managed an impressive range of coverage, it’s thus far excluded visible light, but the addition of a metalens layer to metamaterials might finally overcome this obstacle.
Based on the materials discovered so far, we haven’t yet managed to penetrate the visible light portion of the spectrum with a cloak. This new advance in metalenses, however, seems to indicate that if you can do it for a single, narrow wavelength, you can apply this nanofin technology to extend the wavelength covered tremendously.
Now combining these two advances together, and one comes very close to what I was talking about in the Giza Death Star books: crystals that could actually bend light in such a manner that the crystal itself functions as a kind of mini-singularity. But that same concept could also lead to a kind of material able to cloak an object -rendering it invisible - not just to radar or microwaves, but in all wavelengths of the spectrum. To put all this somewhat differently, the technological advances are such that they seem to be leading us to the conclusion that "invisibility" and "singularity" are but two aspects of the same underlying phenomenon.
But where is the high octane speculation in all this?
Well, this is the reason I mentioned not just my own book Secrets of the Unified Field, but also the Guffey and Leonhardt/Philbin books above, because there is serious science behind the concept, and there are some serious stories about encounters with the phenomenon out there as well, and if Guffey's book is the truth, then it suggests something rather profound: that the experiments in radar stealth did not stop with the Philadelphia experiment, but continued - very covertly - for all the decades after World War Two. Given enough money and time, who knows what might have been achieved.
But we're still not to the exact point of my high octane speculation, even with that observation. Rather, what I suspect happened in those covert researches was something quite specific (and mind you, it's only a suspicion). I suspect that the first thing "they" discovered was that a plasma sheath around an object could render it virtually invisible to radar under special conditions. As radar is a secondary transmitter effect and NOT A "BOUNCE" (as I've stated on many occasions) a plasma sheath would do the trick. Then, as the second stage of their hidden research, I suspect that they inquired into methods of peering into those plasma sheaths, and discovered that under certain conditions of electrical stress through interferometry, the internal structure of those sheaths could be ascertained to some degree, and the sheath itself could thus be used for the secondary transmitter effect (indeed, there are indications that this is precisely how the Russians have done it), and thus be overcome and even perhaps modulated (a boon during that pesky "re-entry" phase when [supposedly] communication with a re-entering space vehicle is not possible). To put it bluntly, they learned how to use a plasma to probe a plasma. And, if the researches of Thomas Townsend Brown are any indicator, they also learned that there's a deep connection of all that to gravity as well. And, just to complete our nosedive off the end of the twig of speculation, suppose they have figured out how to communicate through that plasma sheath during re-entry. What better time for a quick burst transmission of data you want to keep secret from the crowd always otherwise listening in? You'd have to be capable of creating some form of channel through that plasma sheath... but then again, plasmas are well-known to create such pipelines all the time...
See you on the flip side...
