Please join us at this department colloquium by John Pendry celebrating his well deserved Kyoto Prize. 

Discover how a new class of materials can make objects invisible, and enable us to resolve objects much smaller than the wavelength of light. The story began here in Imperial College when John Pendry developed the concept of varying physical structure as an alternative to changing chemical composition of optical materials, giving rise to new properties not found in nature, such as negative refractive indices. Metamaterials have been exploited in several commercial developments ranging from 5G and 6G telecoms, to MRI technology, to lenses no thicker that a few microns, to control of noise in hospital wards.

This event is open to all physics staff and students.
