Lecture: Invisibility Cloak
19 March 2013
The lecture begins with a new look at elementary optics and the adoption of the metamaterials that lead directly to invisibility cloaking.
The latter not only involves hiding objects but hiding events as well, making possible the covert interruption of non-interruptible computers and creating the illusion of a Star Trek transporter.
Part of National Science and Engineering Week
