Researchers from Columbia University, Shanghai Normal University, and the University of Copenhagen have synthesized the first molecule capable of insulating at the nanometer scale more effectively than a vacuum barrier.
Fibers produced by the caterpillars of a wild silk moth have outstanding cooling properties, as well as exceptional capabilities for transmitting light signals and images.
A Columbia University-led international team of researchers has developed a technique to manipulate the electrical conductivity of graphene with compression, bringing the material one step closer to being a viable semiconductor for use in today’s electronic devices.
Columbia Engineers discover geometric underpinnings of T-cell stimulation through precise engineering of T-cell receptor geometry, building a 3D nanofabricated biomimetic surface that simulates the key components of an antigen-presenting cell.
Rutgers, Columbia, and NYU will lead research aimed at pushing the limits of wireless-networking. The platform in New York, called COSMOS, will be a proving ground for a new generation of wireless technologies and applications.
