Princeton is a founding member of a newly announced three-year, $8.9 million cooperative agreement from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) led by Cornell University to launch a regional research hub that will spark collaborations between partners in academia, government and industry from across the Middle Atlantic region.
The hub’s goal is to accelerate the translation of ideas into economic impact and jobs by leveraging intellectual property and new business opportunities that benefit both commercial and defense markets.

Billions of dead lithium-ion batteries, including many from electric vehicles, are accumulating because there is no cost-effective process to revive them. Now Princeton researchers have developed an inexpensive, sustainable way to make new batteries from used ones and have spun off a company to scale up the innovation.

As a master’s student at Auburn University in the 1970s, H. Vincent Poor switched on an oscilloscope and tweaked its knobs to reveal a pattern of bright, undulating lines on a gridded screen — a visual measurement of background noise picked up by a radio receiver, and an example of the real-world relevance of the communication theory he was learning.

Strains of microbes like yeast and E. coli can be engineered to produce useful chemicals and fuels, and can produce more fuel more efficiently by working together. The problem is that when grown together in co-cultures, the fastest-growing strain often outcompetes the others, causing the community to break down and stop chemical production. Now, Princeton researchers have discovered a new way to stabilize co-cultures of microbes using light.
