Magic ‘mantles of invisibility’ have appeared in folk stories through the ages, including a 900-year-old Welsh tale of King Arthur, and in Norse and German fairy tales. Now, new ‘metamaterials’ have brought invisibility cloaking out of the realm of fiction and into science fact.

Hear Professor Yuri Kivshar reveal the magic behind metamaterials and effects previously only imagined in science fiction.

Time: Refreshments from 5.30pm; lecture and live streaming from 6pm
Where: The Shine Dome, Gordon St, Acton

Entry is $6 per person and bookings are essential. For more information, visit the Academy of Science website.
