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.
6374 – Background: Rapid scaling of silicon germanium heterojunction bipolar transistor (SiGe HBT) technology has substantially improved performance of these transistors in RF and mixed-signal applications. At the same time, a smaller feature size means that variations in process, voltage, and temperature (PVT) have greater impact on transistor’s current gain. Also, application of SiGe HBT... Read More
6419 – The United States produces about 20 trillion scf/year of natural gas that generates more than $100 billion annually in sales, with worldwide consumption expected to increase 92% by 2030. However, nearly all natural gas requires some type of treatment to reduce contaminants. The most abundant contaminant, carbon dioxide (CO2), has typical concentrations between 5-25 mol %, while some... Read More
6509 – Background: Gaze tracking is a key technology for studies of visual attention and cognitive processes, and has several important commercial applications in user interface development and evaluations, the design and assessment of advertising and so forth. One such application is gaze analysis in assessing and treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), wherein patients exhibit... Read More
6346 – Development of economically viable propylene/propane separation processes is becoming increasingly important, but is challenging due to the physico-chemical similarities between the two molecules. Membranes offer alternative technology that overcomes the disadvantages of conventional gas absorption approaches. A promising membrane comprises a polyimide hollow fiber with Zeolitic imidazolate...

Bio-Enabled, Bio-Resorbable Fillers of Tailorable Radiopacity for High-Resolution 3-D Imaging of Periodontal Pockets
6485 – Dentistry makes extensive use of x-rays to diagnose dental caries and periodontal disease (periodontitis). Diagnosis of periodontitis, a disease that affects nearly 50% of the U.S. population and is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, is dependent on radiographic evidence of alveolar bone loss. However, such bone loss is preceded by soft tissue detachment from the teeth, and subsequent... Read More
6651 – Background: Organic (or polymer) photovoltaic (OPV) devices have several advantages when compared to inorganic (or silicon) photovoltaic devices. They are extremely thin, lightweight and flexible, and can be manufactured inexpensively in roll form. OPVs have no restriction on shape and size, allowing them to be manufactured in the form of fibers, woven into fabrics, or integrated onto... Read More
6528 – Background: Ceramics offer unique advantages over metals and polymers in extreme environmental conditions but are inherently brittle and susceptible to fracture. Fiber reinforcement in ceramic-matrix composites significantly increases the fracture resistance, but the manufacturing process is more complex and limits the part geometry. Additive manufacturing can potentially enable the... Read More
6581 – Background: Hemispherical resonating gyroscopes belong to a group of vibrating gyroscopes that are used to measure angular rotation rate, with application in several fields of use such as satellites, spacecraft, air and land navigation systems, gaming consoles, platform stabilizers, etc. Successful fabrication and operation of micro-hemispherical shell resonators (mHSR) have provided great...

6520 – Background: Piezoresistive Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) sensors comprise a substantial market share of MEMS sensors in the market today. Silicon piezoresistance has been widely used for various sensors including pressure sensors, accelerometers, cantilever force sensors, inertial sensors, and strain gauges. A majority of MEMS pressure sensors, either static or resonant, require... Read More
6633 – After a seismic event, significant damage to the primary lateral load-resisting system of buildings or bridges is often observed in the form of permanent residual deformations. Earthquakes in California alone has cost over an estimated $60B in damage since 1971 alone. As a result, a need exists to provide a re-centering the primary lateral load-resisting system of buildings or bridges in... Read More
