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.
8001 – An interactive decision support tool that estimates survival probability for potential organ transplant recipients. Background: Every year, thousands of patients die on the organ transplant waiting list. Yet, many organs are discarded and are never used for transplant; in 2009 19.2% of viable donor kidneys intended for transplant were discarded. The discard rates are even higher for... Read More
7814 – A wearable hands-free device for monitoring eye health. Background: There are 325 million people in US and 7.53 billion people all over the world who need regular vision screening based on the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) recommendations. On average, an ophthalmologist sees 5 thousand patients per year, which indicates a need for 65 thousand ophthalmologists in US and 1.5... Read More
7656 – A method to make and apply a durable, water repellent coating to polymeric fabrics. Background: Polymeric fabrics are an important component in manufacturing commercial products for both indoor and outdoor activities. The structure of these fabrics make them naturally hydrophilic, however, many applications require that these fabrics be hydrophobic. While water-repellent coatings are... Read More
8064 – A system to record deformation and temperature data of microstructures simultaneously. Background: Measuring the deformation and temperature fields of mesoscale mechanisms at the microstructure level is important to understand them and to validate models. Mesoscale mechanisms are responsible for the behavior of heterogeneous materials such as certain types of plastics, ceramics, and... Read More
8088 – A device that translates muscle tension to braille-like phrases. Background: Braille is a simple example of how to encode all language using just 6 brain regions; any code can be developed using different brain regions that 'light up' in response to muscle tension. Researchers nationwide are developing brain computer interfaces (BCI) that allow silent communication for people with severe... Read More
7983 – Systems to measure attention deficits in mouse models of human neurological diseases. Background: The control of sensory processing by attention is critical for normal behavior. Impairments in attention underlie many debilitating neurological conditions such as schizophrenia, dementia, and autism spectrum disorders. Currently, there are few effective treatments for these disorders, partly... Read More
7913 – A portable device to profile cell surface expression with high-resolution outputs. Background: Cell surface antigens regulate biochemical interactions of cells, so measuring their expression levels is important in fields such as immunophenotyping, clinical diagnosis and prognosis, and biomedical research. Fluorescence-based flow cytometers are instruments for surface expression analysis... Read More
7324 – A method to fabricated microelectronic mechanical systems (MEMS) devices with horizontal and slanted electrodes. Background: Slanted electrodes are very enabling in capacitive microelectronic mechanical systems (MEMS) deceives. Conventional MEMS fabrication processes are only capable of creating capacitive transducers in vertical or horizontal directions. Many applications require a... Read More
4359 – A silicon microfabricaion technique for the implementation of tunable capacitors with very small tuning voltages. Background: Large-value tunable and/or variable capacitors are needed in a variety of applications, including low-frequency tunable filters and electrostatic energy harvesting devices. Although there exist several high-performance capacitors using different fabrication... Read More
7466 – A method for creating nanoparticles for the modulation of thrombosis, which reduces patient risk of complications and bleeding. Background: Intra-arterial thrombosis (blood clotting in a vessel) causes heart attacks and strokes, contributing to the high mortality rate of cardiovascular disease. Current therapies used to prevent and treat thrombosis, for example, anticoagulants and... Read More
