  报告简介:

  Invisibility has been solely the domain of science fiction for more than a century.  However, it was discovered 10 years ago that there is a solution to this problem lurking in classical wave propagation theory. Work led by Prof. Sir John Pendry showed that electromagnetic wave scattering from an object can, in theory, be eliminated by surrounding it with a shell with the right electromagnetic material properties.  Moreover, despite initial suggestions to the contrary, several groups (including mine) have shown how this concept can be extended to sound waves and other types of waves as well.  I will describe the coordinate-transformation theory behind these solutions, the challenges in designing and fabricating the artificial materials (or metamaterials) that have the necessary but unusual properties, our experimental demonstrations of both electromagnetic and acoustic cloaking that helped prove that the concept is feasible, and the practical difficulties (some of which are severe) that must be solved before this idea can yield devices or materials that achieve what most people think of as invisibility.
