In 15 years metamaterials has brought breakthroughs like invisibility cloaks, acoustic cloaks, miniaturized flat antennas, and you-don’t-have-to-stop-anymore airport security screenings. Sir John Pendry of Imperial College London recently visited co-founder of the field David R. Smith at Duke University to see how his students are continuing their work and to discuss the birth, evolution and future of this novel class of materials.
Metamaterials pioneers David Smith and Sir John Pendry discuss the birth, evolution and future of this novel class of materials in advance of the summer 2015 Metamaterials Science & Technology Workshop. The full video can be seen in it's entirety below.
