CHINA has claimed it has created a mysterious 'super material' that can make anything invisible - and it could make them unstoppable in war.

In a documentary that aired on China Central Television station, it was claimed the world's first 'super material' production line had been built in State Key Laboratory of Metamaterial Electromagnet Modulation Technology based at the Guangqi Advanced Institute of Technology in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China.

The metamaterial has been produced in a state-run laboratory

The lab has been producing 'super materials' or 'metamaterials' such as anti-burning and anti-icing, invisibility materials.

The state-run lab has the abilty to mass produce the materials, as it has a capacity to produce 100,000 square metres of metamaterial annually.

Metamaterials are artificial composites of materials not usually found in nature, and are created from assemblies of multiple elements metals or plastics.

The materials are finely-engineered surfaces that have the characteristics of being foldable, small in size, lightweight and compact.

The metamaterial is foldable, lightweight, anti-burn, anti-ice and invisible

The 'super material' can be used as a smart skin for Chinese fighter jets - making them undetectable in war

In the 'metamaterial cloaking' process path taken by infrared radiation - visible light - through the material is manipulated, shielding it from view by controlling electromagnetic radiation, creating invisibility cloaks.

While the exact functions of the materials have not yet been disclosed, Sina - a Chinese news platform - reported that the assembly line is directly related to the military and the materials are likely to be used to camouflage J-20 fighter jets.
