Public talk: Metamaterials: invisibility cloaks and
bending light, Professor Yuri Kivshar




It is well known that atoms and molecules define the properties of many substances found in nature. A new branch of physics-- nanophotonics-has opened a host of new possibilities, not only to mimic nature but to create whole new classes of  materials with unique properties not found in the natural world.



With these metamaterials we can achieve many effects previously only imagined in science fiction, including bending light in opposite ways and the creation of invisibility cloaking.



In this talk from Professor Yuri Kivshar you can find out more about metamaterials, see some recent achievements of researchers in Australia and around the world, and get a glimpse of discoveries yet to be made.


When: Tuesday, 4 August 2015, refreshments from 5:30 pm.
Lecture and live streaming<http://science.org.au/livestream/> 6pm - 7pm
