14120 – Abstract In recent years, wide-bandgap semiconductors such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) have gained importance in the semiconductor industry. This development is due in part to their ability to operate with reduced losses at higher voltages, frequencies, and temperatures than conventional Silicon (Si)-based devices. However, a challenge currently faced in the... Read More
14187 – Novel harmonic imaging transducer with built-in transmitter and receiver. Abstract Ultrasound sensing is an ultrasound-based diagnostic imaging technique used for visualizing internal body structures. It is widely used in biomedical diagnosis, non-destructive examination (NDE) and other medical applications. Traditional B-mode imaging is the most common approach in medical... Read More
14036 – Abstract Stimuli-triggered drug delivery systems have been increasingly used to promote physiological specificity and on-demand therapeutic efficacy of anticancer drugs. Researchers at NC State University have developed an ATP based trigger for controlled release of anti-cancer drugs. An all-biopolymer nanocarrier has been designed which is comprised of DNA, Protein and Polysaccharide.... Read More
15101 – Abstract Robotics in minimally invasive surgeries such as endoscopy is an emerging field of research and technology. In endoscopy, computer-assisted or direct-drive robotic technology allows the triangulation of flexible tools through telemanipulation. Creation of new flexible operative tools can be transformational for endoscopic procedures. In the short term, the market for robotics... Read More
15087 – Textile-Based Impedance Sensor Arrays for Health Monitoring in Biomedical Applications. Abstract Imagine a shirt that can monitor your health (and doesn’t have a bunch of bulky sensors). Imagine washable, durable, intelligent clothing that tracks your skin temperature, monitors your sweat rate, and records your health history all while in constant communication with your phone. Wearable... Read More
15111 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel method for extracting dye molecules from a small fiber sample automatically and sending them through a series of chemical separation processes for classification. Abstract During the commission of a crime, there is a high probability of fiber transfer given the large quantify of textile materials in the environment. To... Read More
15161 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel design for achieving sound-proofing structures that are both strong and light. Abstract Sandwiched honeycomb panels have been widely used for construction and manufacture in the aerospace industry because of their high strength-to-weight ratio. However, being almost transparent to noise, these structures are notorious for... Read More
15163 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel method for nondestructive inspection using piezoelectric transducers arranged in an annular configuration to generate and receive shear horizontal wave omni-directionally. Abstract Nondestructive testing allows for the evaluation of large metal and composite structures without any damage occurring to the object being examined.... Read More
15089 – North Carolina State University Is currently seeking an industry partner to commercialize a device for gas control in multiwell cell culture plates. Abstract: Cell cultures in a multiwell plate must be grown with identical atmospheres in each well. While it is often beneficial to grow a large number of identical cell cultures under identical conditions, researchers may also be interested... Read More
14131 – Facile approach for nanoparticle fabrication via macromolecular polymer folding as nanocarrier drug delivery system. Abstract Nanocarriers are useful in the drug delivery process in many medical applications. For combinational therapy, they can be designed to provide the capacity to load multiple drugs and unify their pharmacokinetic profiles, leading to the simultaneous delivery of... Read More
