If you’ve ever driven through thick fog in the evening, you are likely familiar with the feeling of futile attempts at improving visibility through the use of headlights.  Light that should be guiding you instead diffuses across the space in front of you, thereby worsening the situation.  What if you could control the way light traveled through material in a way that allowed you to see right through it?

Enter Dr. Hasan Yilmaz, postdoctoral research associate at Yale University in the Department of Applied Physics.  Dr. Yilmaz and his fellow researchers are developing methods to control light scattering and have recently discovered a way to transmit light in a straight path, thereby allowing us to see through materials that we otherwise could not.

Listen in to learn more about potential applications of such methods.
