VIDEO: Engineering Light - Nanophotonics

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 Professor of Applied Physics (APAM) and the David M. Rickey Professor of Applied Physics and of Materials Science (APAM), 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.”
