Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Yang Hao, Professor Roy Sambles FRS, Professor Patrick Grant, Professor Alastair Hibbins, Dr Thomas Philbin and Dr Robert Foster

Event details

This meeting centres on the theory and application of spatial transformations to design devices for controlling waves. This area has garnered significant public interest due to the promise of optical invisibility, but the potential applications are wider. The meeting brings together theorists, material scientists and electromagnetic engineers to consider basic theory, fabrication issues and the potential for radically new devices.

The draft programme is available to download and abstracts of the speakers are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event.
