Professor David Crouse, will lead the discussion at the next NSF Center for Metamaterials (CfM) spring conference. This year, for the first time, the CfM will be inviting non-members to participate in order to promote collaborative research and to expand its industry reach.
In this presentation, we will describe an optical power aggregation technique for visible light applications such as illumination, displays and signage. First, we will discuss several coherent and incoherent beam combining techniques and present their advantages and disadvantages. Then, we will focus on the scalable, pay as you grow fiber-optic based system that can be used in these high color saturation, high contrast applications.
A new report from the National Research Council identifies research priorities and grand challenges to fill gaps in optics and photonics, a field that has the potential to advance the economy of the United States and provide visionary directions for future technology applications. The report recommends that the federal government develop a “National Photonics Initiative” [...]
A pioneering center for photonic science and technology at The City College of New York commemorated three decades of research into the generation and harnessing of light with a celebratory conference in October. Established at CCNY in 1982, the Institute for Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Lasers (IUSL) pioneered an entire field of research. “At that time [...]
The CAT “INDUSTRY SHOWCASE” initiative is a series of webinars to highlight CUNY research applications of interest to corporate scientists and engineers. CAT INDUSTRY SHOWCASE WEBINAR “Novel Approaches to the Fabrication of Polymer Materials with Robust Superhydrophobic Properties” Alan M. Lyons, Ph.D. Department of Chemistry, College of Staten Island and Graduate School, The City University [...]
This recognition from the White House Business Council for Phoebus LLC, a CAT-supported start-up, showcases the type of technology assistance that the CUNY CAT is providing to companies throughout New York State.
The CUNY CAT’s proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) to establish a Center for Metamaterials (CfM) as part of the NSF’s Industry/University Cooperative Research Center program was successful. The award starts on February 1, 2011, and is the result of a productive one-year of planning grant. We are pleased to announce that CUNY is [...]
When Michael Etienne received his doctorate in electrical engineering from CUNY’s Graduate Center, he didn’t have to worry about getting a job.
The CUNY Center for Advanced Technology, which has a long history of collaborating with industry on cutting-edge research and development, is strengthening those ties by establishing a Center for Metamaterials.
“Social patterns are the key to understanding America,” declares sociology Prof. Andrew A. Beveridge. “Facts and figures are fine, but to really understand demographic data, you have to be able to visualize it.”
