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.
7006 – Background: Piezoelectricity is the generation of electrical potential when certain crystals are subjected to mechanical stress. This energy system can be manipulated to result in a flowing current which proves beneficial to many applications. Piezoelectricity is currently used in sensors, optics, ultrasound imaging, consumer electronics, and even in musical instruments and its list of... Read More
5730 – Background: X-ray computed tomography is used for medical and industrial imaging methods. Specifically, Volumetric computed tomography (VCT) is a way to image large areas of a subject with isotropic imaging resolution, and can be used to provide 3D reconstructions of the scanned area. This imaging method is vital in detecting disease and promoting prevention due to its ability to detect... Read More
7183 – Background: Tissue analogs hold great promise as drug and environmental screening tools. However, technical challenges remain to the process of building these tissue analogs, including minimal control over soluble factors presented to the cell and inability to direct cell-cell aggregation from suspension culture. Technology: Johnna Temenoff, Jennifer Lei, and William Murphy from the... Read More
4036 – This technology relates to data communication and data communication protocols. The move from wired networks to wireless networks such as those implemented by IEEE 802.11 (also known as “WiFi”) is becoming more and more common. At the same time, making telephone calls over the internet using a technology such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is also growing in popularity. However,... Read More
5328 – Background: The primary goals of a reputation management scheme are determining the service quality of the peers who provide a service (i.e., service providers) by using feedback from the peers who have rated the service (i.e., raters), and determining the trustworthiness of the raters by analyzing the feedback they provide about the service providers. Thus, the success of a reputation... Read More
6308 – Background: Solid-phase purification systems use solid particles and chromatographic packing material, usually contained in a cartridge type device, to chemically separate the different components of a sample. Liquid chromatography systems are used to separate a sample into its individual parts based on the interactions of the sample with the mobile and stationary phases of the system. It is... Read More
7159 – Background: Natural gas consumption is large and growing worldwide. Compared to other fossil fuels, natural gas is advantageous environmentally and as an energy source because it burns cleaner, has a lower carbon footprint, and possesses a higher thermal efficiency. Before raw natural gas can be useful, several impurities must be removed or reduced to acceptable levels. Popular methods (amine... Read More
6272 – Background: Very high performance electronics circuits and chips require enhanced cooling techniques to allow rapid heat dissipation and prevent any deleterious effect on the performance of the electronics. This is especially true for computers and communication devices and systems used by military and other specialized applications. Currently used two-phase cooling systems suffer from issues...

7150 – Background: Over 250,000 catheter-related bloodstream infections (CR-BSI) occur every year in the United States. These infections are associated with increased length of hospital stay (from 10 to 20 days) and increased cost of care (from $4,000 to $56,000). Risk of CR-BSI increases after breaks in aseptic technique during catheter placement and with increases in the frequency of catheter... Read More
4618 – Background: ZnO nanowires arrays have broad application in fabricating electronic, optoelectronic, and electromechanical devices. Various methods exist to fabricate these arrays but all suffer from process limitations such as requirements for single crystal substrate, high operating temperatures, ZnO seeding, or an external electric field which complicate and consequently limit the...
