Columbia Engineers Invent Method to Control Light Propagation in Waveguides

Yu-NatureNanotechimageFig2.png

Columbia Engineering Professor Nanfang Yu has invented a method to control light propagating in confined pathways, or waveguides, with high efficiency by using nano-antennas. He built photonic integrated devices that had record-small footprints and were also able to maintain optimal performance over an unprecedented broad wavelength range. His method could lead to faster, more powerful, and more efficient optical chips, which in turn could transform optical communications and optical signal processing. (Nature Nanotechnology 4/17)

'Neuron-Reading' Nanowires Could Accelerate Development of Drugs to Treat Neurological Diseases

Image43_color.jpg

A team led by engineers at the University of California San Diego has developed nanowires that can record the electrical activity of neurons in fine detail. The new nanowire technology could one day serve as a platform to screen drugs for neurological diseases and could enable researchers to better understand how single cells communicate in large neuronal networks.

What’s a Knot -- and What’s Not -- in Genomic Mapping

BMF-Dorfman-nanochannel.jpg

Genome mapping complements DNA sequencing, offering insight into huge, intact molecules between 150,000 and 1 million base pairs in length. Obtaining measurements of such large segments is not without its challenges, but new research into the physics of nanochannel mapping published this week in the journal Biomicrofluidics, may help overcome a (literal) knot in the process and advance genome mapping technology.
