Membrane Chiller

A chemical-free, thermally activated air-conditioning system.  Technology Overview:    This refrigerant-free air conditioning system uses specialized water permeable membranes and system architecture instead of a heating coil to cool and dehumidify air. The membrane chiller is driven by low temperature heat, including available low-temperature waste heat from CHP, solar, and other processes, and consumes 70% […]

Haptic Video Game Controller

A hand-held video game controller that adds a tactile sense to gameplay.  Background: Researchers at SUNY Buffalo State College have invented a device that could change the way humans interact with machines. The Haptic Video Game Controller is the first device that brings together sensors providing force feedback and 3-D spatial manipulation, hand-, arm- and […]

Gate All-Around Field Effect Transistors Including Quantum-based Features

A device that increases computational processing power in a single Gate All-Around Field Effect Transistor including quantum-based features. Background: A major problem with conventional transistor technology is that conventional MOSFETs are ill equipped to implement multivalued logic. As the number of states a transistor can store increases, the number of transistors required on a chip […]

Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) modulator for Future Wireless Communications

SUNY Research Foundation Background Electromagnetic (EM) waves are used to provide modern telecommunications for transmitting and receiving data. Conventional modes of communication involve some form of modulation, such as amplitude, frequency and pulse-width modulation. Controlling the orbital angular momentum (OAM) of EM waves is an advanced means of modulating EM waves and signals that enables […]

Enlarging Attachment for Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscopy

A retrofittable attachment that provides increased magnification of the back of the eye (the ocular fundus). Background: Indirect ophthalmoscopy is performed by an examiner with the use of a binocular indirect ophthalmoscope (BIO). The examiner uses a headset to view an image of the patient’s eye in a condensing lens hand-held by the examiner at […]

Dual Wireless Power Charger

A wireless charging station that provides automatic, remote, effortless charging for many types of devices simultaneously. Technology Overview: SUNY Oswego researchers have invented a technology which embodies a proprietary mode of transmitting electrical power from the power transmitter to power receiver antennas to charge multiple devices simultaneously. Distance charging is made possible using wireless power […]

Blood-Based Biomarker Panel for Diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease

NUI Galway Background There is an unmet clinical need for biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease. Making an accurate diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease is difficult, time-consuming and is based on clinical assessment of symptoms, medical history, physical and neurological examination, and response to the drug Levodopa. Expensive imaging methods such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), photon emission […]

An Organotypic Tumor Microenvironment (oTME) Model for High-throughput Discovery of Anti-cancer Therapeutics

Cornell University Background The development and growth of solid tumors relies on their surrounding tumor microenvironment (TME), which consists of several types of non-malignant cells. One of these cell types, named tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), are of great interest to biomedical studies because they are critical to enhance proliferation, angiogenesis, and immune evasion of tumor cells. […]

Injection-Free Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Penn State University Background In both diabetic retinopathy (DR) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), patients’ vision is compromised by cell death, inflammation, growth of abnormal blood vessels, and edema. Most available drugs tackle blood vessel complications in late stage AMD but ignore the earlier occurring pathological events. Technology Overview Researchers have designed proprietary PEDF-derived small […]

Flexible Thermoelectric Devices: Methods of Preparation and Recovering Waste Heat

Background More than 50% of the energy consumption in the United States results in waste heat, primarily from industrial processes. The ability to re-use this heat results in varying opportunities for improving efficiencies in these industrial applications. For example, heat transfer technologies transfers thermal energy from between locations or processes. These heat-to-heat technologies include heat […]
