Researchers at Cornell University's School of Applied and Engineering Physics have demonstrated a way to cloak, or hide, an event in time. The phenomenon is similar to what happens when you remove frames from a film by cutting and splicing, except that instead of losing data about an event, you hide that information. "We've split a [light] beam, slowing down the back end and speeding up the front end, so you get a gap in time," Alexander Gaeta, a professor at the school, told TechNewsWorld. "If there's any information or any data on the beam, we won't interfere with it," Gaeta said.
Very cool work and a very nicely done article. Thank you. I could see strapping a portable laser date insert module over a fiber cable bundle in the field and piggybacking signals while also cloaking the ride.
