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.
6767 – Background A key limitation to engineering microbes for chemical production is a reliance on low-throughput chromatography-based screens for chemical detection. While colorimetric chemicals are amenable to high-throughput screens, many value-added chemicals are not colorimetric and require sensors for high-throughput screening. Technology Here, we use G-protein coupled receptors... Read More
6746 – Background Extremely Low Frequency (ELF, 300-3000 Hz) Very Low Frequency (VLF, 3-30 kHz), and Low Frequency (LF, 30-300 kHz) radio waves have enormous applications. These radio waves propagate efficiently to global distances, allowing long-range over-the-horizon communications and remote sensing, and have long been used for naval communications and for global navigation. For... Read More
6983 – Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) have been invented as a high efficient, cost-effective and easy scalable energy harvesting technology for converting ambient mechanical energy into electricity at a total energy conversion efficiency as high as 85%. The four basic working modes of the TENG have been demonstrated, each of which has different structural design and choice of materials to... Read More
6420 – Background: Several obstacles have prevented conventional thermophotovoltaics (TPV) systems from reaching widespread commercial success. Among these are (1) high cost for high performance III-IV semiconductor substrates and cells; (2) low system efficiencies due to small system sizes and edge effects, and inefficient spectral control; (3) the absence of storage, which forces TPV to...

6832 – Background With over 91% of adults in the United States owning a cell phone, short messaging systems (SMS) or texts have become an integral part of everyday life. Up until now, there had not been an accessible, user-friendly way to capture crucial data, such a healthcare or other areas of research, through SMS. Technology Inventors at Georgia Tech have developed an easy to use... Read More
6737 – Background Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft are able to transport cargo across large areas and take-off/land on unprepared terrain. However, there are many performance and efficiency limitations due to the configuration of conventional helicopters. This has led to the development of new VTOL technologies. Technology Inventors at Georgia Tech have developed a new way to... Read More
6730 – Background Syntactic Foams are closed-cell composite materials that have low densities, high specific strengths, and low thermal expansion coefficients. Syntactic foams are commonly used in marine buoyancy and acoustic damping applications, but there is an opportunity to expand usage in industrial applications that are subject to high decibel fluid-borne, air-borne, and structural...

6945 – Background Rotorcraft are known for their versatility, maneuverability, and vertical take-off/landing capabilities. However, the landing gear dictates the surfaces on which they can land, which then limits their mission capabilities. Although some advanced rotorcraft landing gear systems do exist for sloped landing, they use passive methods or mechanical feedback to maintain a level... Read More
6958 – Background Steady improvements in turbine cooling schemes and coatings have enabled significant increases in turbine inlet temperature, enabling a corresponding rise in combined cycle efficiency. Given the exponential sensitivity of NOx formation rates to temperature, these efficiency increases are creating increased challenges for low-NOx combustion. Technology Inventors at Georgia...

6800 – Background Rotary-winged aircraft, or rotorcraft, are vertical take-off and landing aircraft that use lift generated by rotary wings, or rotor blades, that revolve around a mast. Several rotor blades mounted on a single mast are referred to as a rotor. There are various classes of rotorcraft including helicopters, autogryos and gyrodynes (including tiltrotors), and each having current... Read More
