Prof. Andrea Alù’s research on cloaking a three-dimensional object, making it invisible from all angles, for the first time, has received attention from the BBC News and other major news sources. The idea, outlined in New Journal of Physics, could find first application in high-resolution microscopes.

What we do is different; we realise a shell that scatters [light] by itself, but the interesting point is that if you combine the shell with the object inside, the two counter out and the object becomes completely invisible, Prof Alu told BBC News.
