Title: Amazing World of Science Fiction
Authors: Mishra, Arvind
Issue Date: Mar-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: GRIFFIN, a scientist, believed that if a person’s refractive index was changed to exactly that of air and his body did not absorb or reflect light, then he would be invisible. Griffin successfully carried out this procedure on himself and became invisible. Unfortunately, he could not make himself visible again, and became mentally unstable as a result. Well, Griffin is not a real-life character, as you would have guessed by now. He is the hero of a famous science fiction novel published in 1897—The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells.
