The Science of invisibility
Professor Sir John Pendry, Imperial College, London
Professor Sir John Pendry is receiving the medal for his groundbreaking contributions to the development of meta-materials, i.e. materials with significant and new, unusual optical properties. An example is materials with negative refractive indexes, which can then become 'invisible'. This particular phenomenon is called cloaking.
