'Invisibility cloak' pioneer John Pendry scoops Newton Medal

Jjohn PendryThe physicist who proposed the idea of an "invisibility cloak" has received the Newton Medal, the highest honour of the UK's Institute of Physics (IoP). Imperial College London's Prof Sir John Pendry was cited "for his seminal contributions to surface science, disordered systems and photonics".

But his work on cloaking and "metamaterials" is arguably his most famous and potentially transformative. IoP president Peter Knight called the award "our most important medal".

The institute announced a raft of other awards and honorary fellowships on Monday.

Prof Pendry first gained notoriety outside the field of physics when he published an idea for an "invisibility cloak" in 2006.
