Seems the (nano) superhero lab exists right here in Austin. After moving to UT Austin four years ago, Andrea and his team have created the first-ever 3D cloak of invisibility! Yes, you heard that right. Pushing the laws of physics beyond conventional limits, he’s proving that the combination of light, radio waves and nanomaterials can produce vastly new opportunities beyond what nature can offer, with implications in bioscience, energy, defense. And maybe someday Wonder Woman?
