Shelly Schultz Symposium: A Life in Science


The Shelly Schultz Symposium celebrates the vast achievements of Sheldon “Shelly” Schultz, the late professor of physics who, along with colleagues, discovered metamaterials that were recognized as a scientific breakthrough by the journal “Science” in 2003. Their research created a new class of materials that have unique optical properties and have been used in a number of modern technological applications, including manipulating light to force it to circumvent objects, creating a so-called “cloak of invisibility”—similar to the one made famous in the Harry Potter books and films. Several key physicists, including UC San Diego alumni and professors, will be presenting.
