Artificial Wormhole Creates Invisible Magnetic Field

A team of physicists from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain have created an artificial wormhole in a laboratory that makes an invisible electromagnetic tunnel through space. The theory of wormholes was first posited by Albert Einstein in 1935, predicting that the general theory of relativity would allow for bridges that could connect two separate points of space-time, then called Einstein-Rosen bridges.

While the artificial wormhole created in Spain doesn’t connect two points in space-time precisely, it does replicate the idea with magnetic fields, developed as an extension of “invisibility cloak” proposed in 2007 journal Physical Review Letters. This Spanish tunnel utilises superconductors to manipulate one electromagnetic field to appear at another point in space, with the join being invisible to any form of magnetic detection.

“This device can transmit the magnetic field from one point in space to another point, through a path that is magnetically invisible,” Jordi Prat-Camps, doctoral candidate in physics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and co-author of the study, said. “From a magnetic point of view, this device acts like a wormhole, as if the magnetic field was transferred through an extra special dimension.”

The implementation of this burgeoning magnetic field-bending technology could range from MRI machines that don’t require the claustrophobic tube, to creating invisible stealth vehicles.
