Time cloak hides events by splicing them movie style: Time cloaks work by slowing down light in an optical fibre, creating a gap in the beam. Any outside light that enters the hole becomes cloaked when the original beam is sped up...
A diffraction grating stretches out a laser beam, producing a series of gaps. Pulses of light sent along the fibre at the same time slot into these. A second grating then closes the holes, hiding the pulses from the intended receiver. There is now no record that the pulses ever traversed the fibre... This string of cloaks can hide up to 1.5 gigabytes per second.
