Revolutionary Ultra-thin “Meta-lens” Enables Full-color Imaging

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineers have created the first flat lens capable of correctly focusing a large range of colors of any polarization to the same focal spot without the need for any additional elements. Only a micron thick, their revolutionary "flat" lens is much thinner than a sheet of paper and offers performance comparable to top-of-the-line compound lens systems. UPenn nanophotonics expert Nader Engheta, who was not involved with this study, notes: "This…is an exciting development in the field of flat optics.”

Polymer Coating Cools Down Buildings

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineers have invented a high-performance exterior PDRC polymer coating with nano-to-microscale air voids that acts as a spontaneous air cooler and can be fabricated, dyed, and applied like paint on rooftops, buildings, water tanks, vehicles, even spacecraft--anything that can be painted. They used a solution-based phase-inversion technique that gives the polymer a porous foam-like structure.
