Bi-Layer Multifunctional Coating for the Prevention of Icing
This technology is a bi-layer multifunctional coating that prevents the build up of ice layers on the surface of a material. The layer senses when icing is beginning and triggers a release of deicing chemicals.
Additive Manufacturing - Programmable Multifunctional Engineered Feedstock and Manufacturing Method
This technology allows for an Additive Manufacturing fabrication system that has a multi-functional feedstock. The feedstock functionality includes selective mechanical reinforcement, electrical and thermal conductivity, thermoelectric and photovoltaic energy generation, and sensing properties.
Compact Laser Spectroscopy for Downhole Applications
NETL has developed a new laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) design for that detects and measures of the concentration of elements. This device is ideal for a wide range of industrial applications and because of its innovative construction, can be produced at lower cost than the competition, while providing greater functionality.
Battery Sensor for Charge and Health Monitoring
An optical fibre based sensor that uses nanoplasmonics that enables on-line monitoring of changes in at the electrode surfaces in batteries that correlates to state of charge (SOC) and state of health (SOH).

Novel treatment strategies for Alzheimer's disease using nanodelivery of cerebrolysin
Hollow titanate nanospheres is created for cerebrolysin upload for the drug's slow release over time. The nanodelivery of drug was made in a model of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) induced by Amyloid beta peptide infusion. The technology of cerebrolysin delivery using titanate nanospheres induced marled Neuroproetction not reported earlier.

Nano-micelles for Treatment of Cancer
This invention is a new class of nano-micelles that can treat various forms of cancer. Many cancers can begin to form when tumor regulating genes mutate and stop preventing tumor growth. These micelles may prevent tumor regulating genes from mutating so that they can continue to inhibit tumor growth.
Robust Modal Filtering for Real-Time Control and Performance Optimization of Flexible Aircraft and Other Structures
Innovators at NASA Armstrong are developing a collection of algorithms that can accurately determine the structural state of an aircraft. This work is in response to new airframe designs that save weight—and thereby improve fuel efficiency—by removing stiffness in the wings and incorporating lighter materials, such as composites.
HIGH RESOLUTION ANALYTICAL MICROSCOPE ON A CHIP
EnzoNano's high precision microscope consists of an array of vertically oriented carbon nanotubes that are sensitive to cells, bacteria and viruses. The microscope’s resolution is down to the nanoscale, while its field of view can be as high as millimeters. This automated microscope can be operated by anyone.
Transparent Metal Films for Smartphone, Tablet and TV Displays
A new material that is both highly transparent and electrically conductive could make large screen displays, smart windows and even touch screens and solar cells more affordable and efficient, according to materials scientists and engineers at Penn State who have discovered just such a material.
Magnetoelastic Smart Sensors for Smart PV Modules and Components (MagSens-PV)
We propose a novel passive microsensor for autonomous sensing. These wireless magnetoelastic resonant smart sensors (MagSens) are capable of detecting small changes in magnetic fields emanating from current carrying conductors (CCC’s) to detect µA levels of leakage in µs time scales through highly accurate frequency detection.
High field superconductor of the next generation
Magnetic fields are part of our daily life, for instance in electric motors. Using conventional technologies, the strength of the magnetic field is limited to about 1 Tesla. Superconductors allow a cost efficient generation of magnetic fields well above. The most important application is medical MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).
One Step Synthesis of Coatings for Titanium Implants
Titanium implants are commonly coated with hydroxyapatite, facilitating bone cell integration (osseointegration). The current method for manufacturing hydroxyapatite coatings produces a surface that does not adequately encourage osseointegration, with poor in vivo stability. We have developed a novel one-step manufacturing process that produces a highly osseointegrative, robust hydroxyapatite coating.
Radical Orbital Switching
Free radical polymerisation is a chemical process that has many applications in the manufacture of specialised materials. We have developed a new way of controlling radical reactivity that will reduce costs while increasing the scope of applications and materials that can be made, and is free of undesirable characteristics.
Organic materials as fluorescent probes, parylene process monomers, and novel chemical structures
University of Oregon researchers have discovered new basic science leads in the development of new fluorescent molecules (heterocyclic P- & N-containing compounds) and monomers for the parylene process (functionalized "paracyclophane" compounds). Patent applications seek to protect the composition of matter of these new materials.
Heterometallic Group 13 Keggin-like Nanoclusters
The Johnson Group has developed a high yielding and quick method to synthesize aluminum and gallium clusters. These clusters have also been made with a combination of In and Ga atoms. These clusters can be used as precursors for components of electronic devices.
Novel therapeutic strategy for Exacerbation of brain injury induced edema and neuropathology at High Altitude by Nanowired cerebrolysin
Brain injury occurring at high altitude in soldiers is more dangerous than injury at sea level. We developed nanowired cerebrolysin treatment that is able to significantly reduce high altitude brain injury induced pathology and improve survival by reducing brain edema and neuronal damages.
Co-administration of nanowired Alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone and cerebrolysin enhances neuroprotection in concussive head injury following sleep deprivation
Sleep deprivation in military resulting in mental anomalies. Traumatic brain or head injury in sleep deprived soldiers exacerbate brain pathology. Our innovation showed that co-administration of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone and cerebrolysin enhances neuroprotection following concussive head injury induced brain pathology in 48 to 72 h sleep deprived cases.
