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
14048 – Novel structure for auxetic materials built using simple pleating technology. Abstract Researchers at NCSU have developed a method for treating fabrics and/or garments that gives them a negative Poisson’s ratio, i.e. when the fabric is stretched or compressed in one direction, the fabric will s in the perpendicular direction. Materials with this property are also known as “auxetic”.This... 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
14031 – North Carolina State University is seeking a licensee to commercialize a new reinforced vest for aircraft wing mechanics, plumbers, repairmen and other enclosed area access. Abstract NCSU researchers have designed a reinforced vest with improved comfort, safety and productivity during entry into enclosed areas of aircraft wings and fuel tanks. Aircraft mechanics are currently forced to lie... Read More
14175 – High Order Parametric Sound System -Narrow Sound Beam technology. Abstract Directional Sound is an engineered phenomenon whereby the spread of produced sound waves is much narrower than sound produced by traditional speakers. Concentrating sound signals in this way can produce a narrow “beam” of sound, with the ability to project into a narrow, restricted area. Unlike traditional stereo... Read More
Phase Calibration Circuit and Methodology for Multi-Channel Radar Receivers in Vehicle Collision Avoidance Systems
14198 – Advanced collision avoidance solutions with multi-channel radar receiver Abstract Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) Radar are known to provide trustworthy measurement values in applications where high accuracy, repeatability, and reliability are necessary. Additionally, the non-contact nature of the system makes it an excellent candidate for applications in harsh outdoor... Read More
