Up until now, the invisibility cloaks put forward by scientists have been fairly bulky contraptions – an obvious flaw for those interested in Harry Potter-style applications. However, researchers from the U.S. have now developed a cloak that is just micrometres thick and can hide three-dimensional objects from microwaves in their natural environment, in all directions and from all of the observers’ positions.
Focus Microwaves, a Canadian company and a world leader in load pull, harmonic load pull and noise measurement solutions, is now closer to its European customers. On October 1, the company’s first European subsidiary opened in Ottobrunn, Germany, near Munich. The new sales and support office is serving customers throughout Europe, Turkey, Israel and Russia and is headed by Matthias Beer, a former product manager for vector network analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz.
