Making Batteries From Waste Glass Bottles

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering have used waste glass bottles and a low-cost chemical process to create nanosilicon anodes for high-performance lithium-ion batteries. The batteries will extend the range of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and provide more power with fewer charges to personal electronics like cell phones and laptops.

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.
