Sir John Pendry
An Impact! People case study from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Professor Sir John Pendry is one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists and his revolutionary work on materials has opened the doors to a world of new possibilities.
With EPSRC support, Pendry established an entirely new field of science – known as metamaterials. These new materials derive their properties from their structure not the material from which they are made. In short, his work has created materials with electromagnetic properties that give us greater control of light itself.
EPSRC is a part of the Research Councils UK (RCUK) partnership of research councils.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
