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
14264 – Optimized Machine Olfaction System for odor examination in hazardous environments Abstract The odor quality of a consumer product can be a significant factor in repeat purchase as well as overall customer satisfaction. The traditional methodology of employing a human panel as odor testers incurs steep costs in their training and maintenance, and also suffers in consistency of test results.... Read More
15106 – Cost efficient Interferometric Imaging for Diagnostics and Remote Sensing Applications. Abstract Millimeter-wave imagers operating at 30-300 GHz are able to see through dust storms, clouds, fog, clothing, and bandages, and are useful for aircraft navigation, remote sensing, concealed object detection, and biomedical imaging. Current application of phased arrays in millimeter-wave based... Read More
14168 – Innovative method for designing comfortable and non-toxic insect-resistant textile materials. Abstract Mosquitoes and other insect vectors are omnipresent in the environment worldwide and have long been associated with significant human illness and death. They are able to transmit infectious diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and plague. Malaria, alone, causes over five... Read More
14055 – Optical fiber based ultra-small particle detector Abstract Particle detection in air or water is a challenging task due to particle dispersion and size variation. Current sensitive systems based on light scattering tend to be bulky and are often several centimeters in size. This limits their use in wearable air monitoring systems. Professor Dr. John Muth at NC State University has... Read More
