Invisibility cloaks and the world’s most accurate clock share the spotlight at the 25th International “Nicolás Cabrera” Summer School, devoted to nanophotonics

Few physicists would have imagined two decades ago that a macroscopic object could be turned wholly invisible or that we would one day be able to observe viruses or atoms with a simple smartphone mounted lens or get light to pass through holes narrower than itself. The 25th edition of the Nicolás Cabrera School, held in the Madrid municipality of Miraflores de la Sierra on 10-14 September, will welcome some of the top international names in the nanophotonics area.
