Cloaking space-time
July 2011 article from Physics World. "Most existing invisibility cloaks are designed to hide objects from view. But as Martin McCall and Paul Kinsler explain, it could also be possible to make "space–time" cloaks that allow selected events to go undetected."
Superlens breaks optical barrier
August 2005 article from Physics World, by David R. Smith. "Physicists have built a lens that can image nano-scale objects using visible light."
Beating the diffraction limit
May 2004 article from Physics World, by David R. Smith. "Negative-index materials are being used to make lenses with perfect image reconstruction."
The reality of negative refraction
May 2003 article from Physics World, by David R. Smith. "Recent experiments that demonstrate the negative refraction of light could bring a heated scientific debate to a close, and give negative-index materials a positive future."
Magic material flips refractive index
April 2001 news article from Physics World, about the creation of a material with negative refractive index.
