Controlling Waves: 500 Million Years Ago to Tomorrow
Wed, 22 Jun 2016, 18:00
Ross McPhedran, University of Sydney
This public lecture will describe two topics. The first of these is the impact of the evolution of image-forming eyes on the diversity of marine species around 500 million years ago, relying on what we can learn from comparison of the fossil records and existing species. The second concerns cloaking, the hiding of objects from detection by waves-i.e. the attainment of sorts of invisibility.
Doors open 17:30. The talk will be followed by an informal reception to which ticket holders are invited.
