/ Featured Inventions

Simple and Low-Cost Approach to Frabricating Anti-Fouling Membranes

This invention enables membrane manufacturers to fabricate fouling-resistant ultrafiltration/microfiltration membranes in a simple and low-cost way with only a minimal change to their existing production method.

New Method for Making Very High Speed Time-Interleaved A/D Converters

This invention is concerned with methods and structures for reconstruction of uniform digital samples from nonuniform digital samples.

Enhanced Polymer Membrane Improving Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Performance

This invention describes the benefits and the method of manufacturing of a modified Nafion polymer electrolyte membrane that can significantly improve the performance of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC).

A New SEP Classifier for Intraoperative Spinal Cord Surgery Monitoring

This invention allows spinal cord surgery patients to go through a shorter anesthetic and therefore reduces their secondary risk.

A High Performance Catalyst for Low Activation Energy Dehydrogenation

This invention provides a high performance catalyst for dehydrogenation by choosing which low activation energy dehydrogenation can be achieved at near room temperature and atmospheric pressure.

New Method for Estimating the Remaining Life of Power Converters in Real-Time

This invention enables continuous online life monitoring fo switching power supplies.

Low-Cost Compact Electronic Reverberation Chamber

This invention provides a compact reverberation chamber, also known as a mode stirred chamber, for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing.

Method for Growing Epitaxial STO (110) Films without Any Buffer Layer

This invention provides a method for growing epitaxial (110)-oriented SrTiO3 thin films on silicon without any buffer layer, by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique.
