Publisher Description

Invisibility has fascinated people since time immemorial, but only a decade ago did invisibility become a serious subject of scientific investigation. This lively novel, authored by an expert in the field, takes the listener on a journey to fascinating places and—en passant—on an intellectual adventure involving some of the most fascinating subjects of optics.

While enjoying the fun and action of a travel story, the listener will gain an accurate notion of the real science of invisibility, of the light and shade of the business of science, as well as glimpses into different cultures. From the first page, you will gradually become immersed in a different world, the world of the science of light. The book includes an appendix providing interested listeners with deeper insights into the fundamental physics of space-time, gravity, and light.

Ulf Leonhardt enjoys imaginative research that connects the practical aspects of physics with abstract ideas, thoughts, and stories. He loves to find and use unusual and often unused connections across several areas of physics, from invisibility cloaking to cosmology. He lives with his family in Tel Aviv.
