Scientists resulted in a coating so black that spectrometers can’t measure it! Even running a high power laser pointer across it (in the video), barely reflects anything back to the viewer…
This is a new development of the Vantablack process (just out of the reactor).
We have never before made a material so ‘black’ that it can’t be picked up on our spectrometers in the infrared. Watch this channel to see where it leads!
Here is an example of a very wrinkled aluminium foil coated with Vantablack. We purposely shot this on an iPhone 5s and used no edits. it’s exactly as you see it on the screen!
