  11. 11. Invisibility: Theory & Practice - FOSSCON, Aug 10th, 2013 http://timeandquantummechanics.com The Invisible Man “If a sheet of glass is smashed, Kemp, and beaten into a powder, it becomes much more visible while it is in the air; it becomes at last an opaque white powder. This is because the powdering multiplies the surfaces of the glass at which refraction and reflection occur. In the sheet of glass there are only two surfaces; in the powder the light is reflected or refracted by each grain it passes through, and very little gets right through the powder. But if the white powdered glass is put into water, it forthwith vanishes. The powdered glass and water have much the same refractive index; that is, the light undergoes very little refraction or reflection in passing from one to the other.” -- Griffin … “Yes, yes,” said Kemp. “But a man's not powdered glass!” Friday, August 9, 13

  20. 20. Invisibility: Theory & Practice - FOSSCON, Aug 10th, 2013 http://timeandquantummechanics.com Camouflage Modern camouflage began in 1915, when, after a crushing defeat by the Germans, the French army abandoned their stylish white gloves and red pantaloons and enlisted a cadre of artists to develop stealthier attire. The U.S. followed suit in 1917. In addition to hand- painted uniforms, these camoufleurs created false bridges, decoy tanks, and, as seen above, paper-mache horse carcasses that snipers used as blinds. Friday, August 9, 13

  78. 78. Invisibility: Theory & Practice - FOSSCON, Aug 10th, 2013 http://timeandquantummechanics.com How to Vanish a Cat The apparatus uses the fact that the human eye can’t see phase information to help route light around the “space between”. With no need to preserve the phase, the design is much simpler! Only works from a few directions, alas. http://arxiv.org/abs/1306.1780 Friday, August 9, 13
