SLOW LIGHT

Slow Light is a popular treatment of today&x0027,s astonishing breakthroughs in the science of light. Even though we don&x0027,t understand light&x0027,s quantum mysteries, we can slow it to a stop and speed it up beyond its Einsteinian speed limit, 186,000 miles/sec, use it for quantum telecommunications, teleport it, manipulate it to create invisibility, and perhaps generate hydrogen fusion power with it. All this is lucidly presented for non-scientists who wonder about teleportation, Harry Potter invisibility cloaks, and other fantastic outcomes. Slow Light shows how the real science and the fantasy inspire each other, and projects light&x0027,s incredible future.Emory physicist Sidney Perkowitz discusses how we are harnessing the mysteries of light into technologies like lasers and fiber optics that are transforming our daily lives. Science-fiction fantasies like Harry Potter&x0027,s invisibility cloak are turning into real possibilities. Please click here for more info.
