The concept is at such a primitive stage that the scientists talk only at the moment of being able to cloak particles of dust - not spaceships.
The authors of the paper argue that the cloak needn't just work with a speck of dust, but could also apply to larger objects.

Hows about if a film of dust around an object could cloak the object itself?

FRANKFURT (AFX) - EADS is working on developing technology that makes planes or missiles invisible to the naked eye, Financial Times Deutschland said, citing Juergen Kruse, head of EADS's camouflage technology unit.
'We are examining new technologies with which flying objects more than 800 metres away cannot be seen,' Kruse said. 'And our goal is a plane that cannot be detected over great distances.'
These new technologies may use light-emitting diodes or active plastic coatings to allow planes to adapt optically to their surroundings, similar to chameleons.
If EADS can secure research funding from the German government, flight tests with the new planes may begin within the next three years.

Ouch sceptic attack !
BAE is & has been on a 'Quest' for Visual Stealth/Cloaking Technology for a good few years & now leads the World in this cutting edge technology.
