A new invisibility cloak to conceal objects in diffusive atmospheres

Scientists have come up with a new invisibility cloak capable of concealing objects in diffusive atmospheres, not just in permanent light, made possible by the cloaks developed so far, but also in any kind of light. Their work, which establishes the bases to render undetectable, for example, a plane in the fog or a submarine in the sea.

A 'strand' of DNA as never before

In a carefully designed polymer, researchers have imprinted a sequence of a single strand of DNA. The resulting negative remained chemically active and was capable of binding the appropriate nucleobases forming a genetic code. The polymer matrix thus functioned exactly like a sequence of real DNA.
