From computer simulations, the team found that shock waves passing through a crystal alter its properties as they compress it. For example, a crystal that normally allows red light through but reflects green light might become transparent to green light and reflect red light instead.

Very interesting would be to shift radiation invisible to eye so that we can actually peek how it looks like.
No. It would simply register as the abscence of light - ie. black. For real invisibility as we think of it, we need to mask with lights fitting in with the background.Originally posted by maximus
wow... if i am understanding this correctly, could it bounce back a frequency of light that the human eye cannot percieve thereby "cloaking" it?
