Each year Georgia Tech develops hundreds of technologies, and we seek industry collaborators to license and take those technologies from our labs to the market. Technologies are searchable by category, key word, or phrase and include a detailed description of the technology, inventor and patent information, and contact information to learn more about each technology.
Our available technologies are updated periodically but please feel free contact the Office of Industry Engagement team for additional technologies and information.
6252 – Background: This technology offers a novel method for synthesis of bimetallic core-frame nanocrystals.Bimetal nanocrystals are central to the development of catalysts for use in fuel cells, catalytic converters, and numerous industrial processes. The catalytic activity, efficiency, and selectivity of noble-metal nanocrystals are strongly dependent on their size, shape, composition,... Read More
6177 – Background: This landmark breakthrough in three-dimensional (3D) piezotronic transistor arrays dramatically advances the field of human-electronics interfacing, sensing, and micro-/nanosystems. The field of nanowire piezotronic transistors has been pursued as a solution to the challenges associated with directly interfacing electronics with mechanical actions (i.e., strain) and the intense...

6075 – Background: This new modulation method for achieving efficient high data transmission through inductive links. Inductive links have been extensively used for short-range data and power transmission and are quickly becoming one of the most common methods to wirelessly send power and data from the power source to several electronic devices. The major challenges that limit the widespread... Read More
Better Membranes for Oxygen-Nitrogen Gas Separation to Reduce Flammability for Aircrarft and Other Industries
6049 – Background: This invention prepares carbon molecular sieve (CMS) membranes with high-performance gas separation capabilities to reduce flammability risks in aircraft and other applications. CMS membranes are generally produced by the pyrolysis of polymer fiber membranes under an inert atmosphere or vacuum. Improvements to CMS membranes can by achieved by tuning the pyrolysis temperature and... Read More
6019 – Background: This technology was developed to provide an efficient vehicle for extended underwater exploration. Most vehicles designed for this purpose are based on rigid-hull submarines. Their effectiveness is limited by the need to incorporate long tethered cables to a mother ship, propellers that become entangled in sea grass or debris, and rigid hulls that prevent maneuvering in close...

5895 – Background: This technology takes a dramatic step forward in the development of high-resolution pressure sensors. The ability of electronics to mimic human senses—particularly our sense of touch—has long been a significant challenge for robotics and other computer applications. Touch pads are used frequently in today’s electronics, but their resolution is nowhere near that of nerve endings... Read More
5766 – Background: This technology is a graphene-based transistor that offers superior performance characteristics to silicon-based microelectronic circuitry. These circuits are found in all of the digital technology in use today. However, the current silicon-based computer processors can perform only a certain number of operations per second without overheating. Nanoscale carbon-based circuitry... Read More
5619 – Background: This technology was developed to provide a simpler and faster adaptive control system for use in a variety of uncertain systems—that is, those with fixed or varying parameters that are only approximately known. Examples of such systems include aircraft flight, vibrating systems, turbine engine dynamics, or combustion processes. Existing adaptive controllers estimate the status of... Read More
5589 – Background: This technology was developed to provide a simpler, faster method to grow ultra-thin graphite layers—also known as multi-layered graphene. An atomic-scale carbon lattice, graphene offers many desirable properties for the fabrication of semiconductors. But, for graphene to be useful in semiconducting applications, its native semi-metallic nature must be modified to introduce a... Read More
5453 – Background: This innovative approach to three-dimensional (3D) packaging of integrated circuits (ICs) increases the logic-to-memory bandwidth of mobile devices without increasing power consumption. Two of the key factors influencing an IC’s bandwidth are the number of logic-memory interconnections (i.e., I/O density) and the length of those connections. Wire-bonded 3D packaging structures...
