Creation of invisibility cloaks using transformation optics

Started June 28, 2021

Abstract or project description

This project is focused on understanding the use of transformation optics and metamaterials to create optical devices for hiding objects and making them invisible. Topics covered include Snell's law, tranformation optics, Maxwell's equations, Leonhardt's and Pendry's paper from 2006. Aneeka will create and submit a video about invisibility cloaks to the Breakthrough Junior Challenge (https://breakthroughjuniorchallenge.org/) by June 25.
