Computer scientists at Columbia Engineering have invented FontCode, a new way to embed hidden information in ordinary text by imperceptibly changing, or perturbing, the shapes of fonts in text.
Researchers led by Nanfang Yu developed a technique to spin artificial fibers that mimic the nanostructures and optical properties of comet moth's silk fibers.
Sinisa Vukelic has developed a new non-invasive approach to permanently correct vision that shows great promise in preclinical models.
Researchers led by Alexander Gaeta have demonstrated, for the first time, a chip-based dual-comb spectrometer in the mid-infrared range, that requires no moving parts and can acquire spectra in less than 2 microseconds. 
A team of researchers have developed a practical approach to confining light to the nanoscale.
