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
13124 – A novel flexible sleep monitoring system using functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). Abstract Sleep quality can be directly correlated with productivity and health. Presently, this is estimated by recording and analyzing the blood oxygenation levels of a sleeping individual through the night. Sleep studies are conducted in designated labs where patients are connected to bulky... Read More
Nanocoining: High Speed, High Throughput Imprinting of Micro and Nano-Scale Features on Moving Substrates
12290 – Novel technique to efficiently produce Anti-Reflective products with tapered index. Abstract The application and advantages of micro and nano structures in non-reflective surfaces is conspicuous from their usage in a broad spectrum of technological domains. Applications ranging from LEDs, semiconductors, and flexible electronics, to energy efficient glass, lighting products, and solar... Read More
15034 – An inexpensive new solution for oil collection Abstract Oils are used in industrial manufacturing of immense number of products ranging from food to vehicles to power transformers. With such broad application range for industrial oils, reclamation and reuse can lead to significant time and cost savings, as well as spill cleanup and disposal. Increasingly strict requirements for... Read More
07010 – Researchers at NC State University have developed a new low-cost process to synthesize cyclobutene-based polymers, which can be used in oil spill absorbents, anti-vibration materials, and high friction rubber. Abstract Traditional cyclobutene-based polymers, which have advancing properties such as low dielectric constant and high noise absorption capacity, have not been widely used... Read More

14157 – NCSU is seeking an industry partner to commercialize a novel microemulsion system for enhanced cellulose production Abstract: Over the recent years, interest in cellulose nanofibrils (CNF or NFC) has increased remarkably because of their high strength, biodegradability, surface area and functional value. These properties of NFC makes it an interesting material for applications in a... Read More
12146 – Abstract: In the biomass-to-ethanol conversion process, cellulose needs to be liberated from the rigid lignin that seals it in, in order for the material to be processable. One of the conventional methods for this pretreatment is acid hydrolysis. Traditionally, liquid acid precursors are employed that create toxic waste, requiring downstream treatment, and are not easily recyclable. Waste... Read More
