Ever seen an object disappear before your very eyes?

Sometimes things may be right in front of you, but what you see is not always what you get. Dr Aliaksandra Rakovich and a team of researchers from KCL Physics explore how light can be manipulated and controlled, and how this is helping to address modern challenges in areas such as energy production and imaging.

Learn what you would need to create a real invisibility cloak and make objects disappear by manipulating light to make the visible invisible.   

This event is part of our Summer Science Exhibition Lates evening.
