Columbia team discovers new way to control the phase of light using 2D materials

Columbia University researchers announced that they have discovered a new way to control the phase of light using 2D materials--atomically thin materials, ∼ 0.8 nanometer, or 1/100000 the size of a human hair--without changing its amplitude, at...

Columbia Researchers Develop New Method to Isolate Atomic Sheets and Create New Materials

Columbia researchers have invented a new method—using ultraflat gold films—to disassemble vdW single crystals layer by layer into monolayers with near-unity yield and with dimensions limited only by bulk crystal sizes. The monolayers have the...
