The Blackest Material

Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created the world’s first material that reflects virtually no light. This anti-reflection technology is based on nanomaterial and could lead to the development of more efficient solar cells, brighter LEDs and smarter light sources. In theory, if a room were to be coated with this material, switching on the lights would only illuminate the items in the room and not the walls, giving a sense of floating free in infinite space
