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.
7244 – Background: People who are wheelchair bound, either permanently or temporarily, can be susceptible to pressure ulcers. These ulcers, although preventable through regularly shifting one’s weight, can have critical effects in all aspects of life. They can lead to reduced participation, mobility, longer unemployment, increased risk for future ulcers, and premature death. Studies conducted... Read More
5947 – Background: Body, vehicle and other types of armor rely on strength and density to prevent energy transfer from shock or stress. Shock wave and impact forces have traditionally been dealt with through the use of metal, polymer, elastic air cushioned voids, and, in the case of military armor, additional ceramic materials and composites with air voids. While heavy combat vehicles... Read More
6264 – Background: Video streaming on the Internet is exponentially increasing as exemplified by Hulu and Netflix. A video streaming technology called Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) allows video to be in a single large file, or multiple small segments. This flexibility enables companies to utilize off-the-shelf web servers for deployment of a content distribution networks (CDN)... Read More
7614 – Background: “RADAR” was originally an acronym for RAdio Detection And Ranging; hence, the very name emphasizes the natural solution radar provides for down-range profiling. Cross-range profiling in radar, on the other hand, has long been a challenging problem. Georgia Tech offers a breakthrough solution called “Solopulse” for the cross-range detection problem in both azimuth and elevation... Read More
2323 – Technology Three researchers from the School of Physics, James Gole, Peter Hesketh, and Lenward Seals, at the Georgia Institute of Technology have explored the use of porous silicon (PS) for sensor applications. The use of which in the past, in sensory applications, has been limited due to the fact that manufacture of such sensors has not been very successful. Through their research, a... Read More
Mixed Integer Programming Approaches for Treatment Planning in Radiosurgery, External Beam and Intensity Modulated Treatment Planning
2217 – Technology Three researchers from the School of Industrial Engineering, Eva Lee, Tim Fox, and Ian Crocker, at the Georgia Institute of Technology have explored optimization algorithms based on mixed integer programming techniques. During the research of these techniques, an invention for generating high-quality treatment plans for LINAC radiosurgery treatment was developed. The physical... Read More
1945 – Background Currently, heat exchangers on vehicles are typically placed substantially perpendicular to an air flow and towards the front of the vehicle, which requires a large frontal area on the vehicle, thereby producing a high associated drag. Private and commercial vehicles usually employ a heat exchanger commonly referred to as a “radiator” to effect heat transfer. As illustrated, the... Read More
6957 – Background: Interconnects in electronic systems are a basic building block that enable electrical signals to move through the different components of the system. The capability of the interconnect to transport signals reliably is a critical factor in high performance electronic systems. Overcoming barriers in the development of interconnect technology can lead to higher performance computing... Read More
6943 – Background: Aromatic monomers are important precursors to valuable industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biofuels, and other applications. They are typically generated through various types of catalysis in industrial, chemical-based facilities. Selective monomer hydroxylation could convert these precursors to valuable feedstock for these and many other applications. Technology: Inventors... Read More
6864 – Background: Cell-based assay systems have become increasingly important as the pharmaceutical industry seeks to increase the efficiency of drug development. Use of cell-based assays have the potential to help reverse an increasing trend of costly late-stage drug failures, which can result in a loss of several hundred million dollars. Current cell-based systems, especially those relying on a... Read More
