Slow Light (July 2011) is Sidney Perkowitz’s fifth book of science nonfiction for popular audiences. Slow Light
is a popular treatment of today’s astonishing breakthroughs in the science of light. Even though we don’t understand light’s quantum mysteries, we can slow it to a stop and speed it up beyond its Einsteinian speed limit, 186,000 miles/sec; use it for quantum telecommunications; teleport it; manipulate it to create invisibility; and perhaps generate hydrogen fusion power with it.
All this is lucidly presented for non-scientists who wonder about teleportation, Harry Potter invisibility cloaks, and other fantastic outcomes. Slow Light shows how the real science and the fantasy inspire each other, and it projects light’s incredible future.
