14035 – Innovative software product for Heat Monitoring in Christie Microtiles. Abstract Christie Digital’s modular micro-tiles are widely used to create large video displays for various stage shows and advertisement boards in public spaces. Since these tiles can be arranged to create displays of large complex non-standard shapes, every tile is exposed to varied amounts of heat. Consequently, it... Read More
15001 – An advanced and highly efficient structure for oil mist collection. Abstract Oil mist pollution can damage sensitive electronic circuitry and other industrial machinery leading to lost productivity and increased costs. In addition, long term exposure to oil mist from machine operations has been shown to lead to increased risks of developing certain cancers and presents a known occupational... Read More
08089 – North Carolina State University is currently seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel composition for attracting mosquitoes and stimulating oviposition. A U.S. utility patent application has been filed for this invention. Abstract Mosquitoes serve as vectors for the spread of several diseases that severely impact the health of humans, pets, and livestock. For example,... Read More
14197 – Efficacy of Donor Site Wound Dressings using Chitosan/Chitin as Dressing Material. Abstract Most of the current anti-bacterial liquids available in the market for sanitary and topical utilities are based on harsh chemistry. For example, chemicals such as Triclosan have proven to be harmful to human health. Further, harsh chemical use on wounds is not advised due to the possibility of... Read More
14154 – Innovative large-scale synthesis methodology of silica-overcoated gold nanorods (SiO2-GNRs). Abstract An innovative large-scale synthesis methodology to create silica-overcoated gold nanorods (SiO2-GNRs) has been developed by Dr. Joseph B. Tracy’s group. Unlike current commercially-available SiO2-GNRs which could only be produced in small quantities and limited ranges of SiO2 shell... Read More
14053 – A novel black box cloning technique to capture both temporal and spatial locality and replicate memory access behavior of workloads. Abstract With increased growth in the number of cores and the levels of cache hierarchy, hardware architects are faced with the arduous task of designing the architecture of microcontrollers/processors without a clear understanding of the client’s workload....

Electrical Impedance Tomography Based Sensing Skin for Damage Detection in concrete structures, pressure vessels and pipelines
14288 – Crack detection in electrically conductive and non-conductive structures using Electrical Impedance Tomography Based Sensing Skin. Abstract Cracking is a major concern in a wide range of structures and systems including oil drill platforms, bridges, dams, power plants, pressure vessels, and pipelines due to service condition stresses. Rapid detection of crack and damage is crucial for... Read More
14160 – Lung Stem Cells for Therapeutic Lung Regeneration NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel source of resident lung progenitors for cell-based lung regeneration and use in the therapeutic treatment of lung diseases. A U.S. provisional patent application has been filed. Abstract Pulmonary diseases can result in devastating health conditions and are a worldwide leading... Read More
14214 – An efficient and novel compressive imaging algorithm Abstract Compressed sensing is a signal acquisition and reconstruction technique. It recovers a sparse signal from very few non-adaptive, linear measurements by convex optimization. Compressed sensing is widely applicable in many high tech and quickly growing fields including medicine, radar, seismology (for gathering geophysics),... Read More
