IC CIRCULATOR
Columbia Engineers Develop the First On-Chip RF Circulator that Doubles WiFi Speeds with a Single Antenna
“This technology could revolutionize the field of telecommunications,” says Krishnaswamy, director of the Columbia High-Speed and Mm-wave IC (CoSMIC) Lab. “Our circulator is the first to be put on a silicon chip, and we get literally orders of magnitude better performance than prior work. ”

Engineering Light: Nanophotonics at Columbia Engineering

After almost a decade of long-distance collaborations, Keren Bergman, Michal Lipson, and Alex Gaeta are working together in one place, here at Columbia Engineering. Lipson and Gaeta joined the School this summer as the Eugene Higgins Professor in Electrical Engineering (EE) and the David M. Rickey Professor of Applied Physics and of Materials Science, respectively. And now, together with Bergman, who is the Charles Batchelor Professor and EE chair, the trio is set to break new ground in nanophotonics, or, as Lipson, a preeminent leader in nanophotonic fabrication, puts it, “optics on a very, very small scale.”

 

INVENTING THE BIO-MACHINE

Inventing the Bio-Machine

The Shepard Group focuses on mixed analog-digital CMOS integrated circuit design. A growing number of research projects exploit custom CMOS microelectronics for nontraditional applications in chemistry and biology and combining CMOS electronics with non-traditional materials for novel applications.
