Today, Columbia announced the $21.5 million gift, which will advance research and teaching in chemistry at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Columbia College, and the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.
Columbia scientists have developed a way to harness more power from singlet fission to increase the efficiency of solar cells, providing a tool to help push forward the development of next-generation devices.
Novel Materials Convert Visible Light into Infrared Light, Opening Up New Routes for Photodynamic Therapy and Drug Development
The new process converts infrared energy into visible light, allowing innocuous radiation to penetrate living tissue and other materials without the damage caused by high-intensity light exposure.
A team of Columbia researchers show that a widely used chemical tracer, combined with a cutting-edge microscope, can track metabolic changes within the living cells of animals.
The design is the first practical floating solar hydrogen-generating device to perform water electrolysis without pumps or membranes and could lead to low-cost, sustainable hydrogen production.
