|2020-046||Air-free Transfer Vessel for Multiple Diagnostic Tools||This invention describes a hermetically sealed testing vessel for characterizing air-sensitive specimens that facilitates transfer between multiple diagnostic tools without exposure to air. The flexible transfer vessel addresses the key challenges for characterizing a variety of air-sensitive…|
|2020- 003||Image and video analysis as a service framework-aware AI||Computer vision and image analysis does not easily transition into the commercial landscape because it is disconnected from the end users. It is difficult to produce models that account for varying scenes and to interpret events of interest. One example would be in video surveillance with data…|
|2020-048||An in situ electrochemical testing stage and in situ analysis method||This technology describes a testing platform for performing structural, chemical, and mechanical characterizations of solid-state Li batteries and other electrochemical devices. It is designed to cooperate with a variety of state-of-the-art materials testing instruments (e.g., SEM, FIB, ToF-SIMS,…|
|2020-047||High Power Mg batteries||This invention describes a novel rechargeable high-power magnesium battery. The battery is comprised of an organic cathode material, a metal anode or magnesium metal anode, and utilizes any suitable electrolyte. Additionally, the battery utilizes a thin & light-weight membrane between the…|
|2020-044||Co-Ti-O photocatalyst active in a wide optical spectral range including energies below the thermodynamic driving forces||"This technology provides photocatalysts based on cobalt-titanium oxides and
methods for forming these photocatalysts. The photocatalysts are active over a wide spectral
range, including energies below thermodynamic driving forces. The photocatalysts can be
|2020-031||Novel heparin-binding growth factor mediated biomaterial-based tissue culture substrate facilitating 3D microenvironment, geometrical and mechanical cues||This invention is a novel substrate developed by patterning titanium diboride (TiB2) layers deposited on silicon (Si) by electron-beam evaporation and micropatterned using photolithography. The microfabricated Si-TiB2 substrate enables patterned cell culture in vitro, independent of any additional…|
