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.
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
6344 – Many important phenomena- video, audio, radar, cellular telephony, etc.- can be characterized using low dimensional signals. Recent investigations of low dimensional signals have focused on the sparse static structure of such signals as the best way to generate accurate signal estimates. Other types of structures, such as the dynamic structure used in Kalman filtering, exist in low... Read More
6252 – Background: Noble-metal nanocrystals are central to the development of catalysts used in fuel cells, catalytic converters, and many other processes in chemical/pharmaceutical/petroleum industries, along with their applications in the area of plasmonics, electronics, photonics, information storage, and biomedicine. In terms of catalysis, the catalytic activity, efficiency, and selectivity of... Read More
6375 – Background: Miniature gyroscopes measures angular velocity, and can be used for navigation. Silicon Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) resonant disk micro-gyroscopes operating in mode-matched condition at high frequencies have been recently considered as a viable miniaturized solution for rotation-rate sensing. Capacitive signal transduction through nano air-gaps has been used for BAW silicon disk... Read More
Stability Enhancement of Paraffin/Exfoliated Graphite Nanoplatelet Composites for Latent Heat Thermal Storage Systems
6185 – Background: Organic materials, such as paraffin wax, are sought as stable and environmentally friendly phase change materials (PCM) for thermal energy storage, but they suffer from low thermal conductivity which limits the rate at which thermal energy flows into and out of the material. A common method to improve the PCM thermal behavior is through loading with high thermal conductivity... Read More
6443 – Identification of risk for cardiovascular death in coronary artery disease patients Background: Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common form. Once a diagnosis of CAD has been made, the physician must devise a treatment strategy, choosing among medical, dietary, lifestyle, and in the most serious cases, surgical... Read More
